Michael Laudrup has agreed to take over at Spartak Moscow.
The former Danish international was believed to be on West Ham’s shortlist as they seek a replacement for Alan Curbishley, but Laudrup, who has been out of work since leaving Getafe last May, has agreed an 18-month deal with the Russian outfit.
Spartak general manager Valeri Karpin has confirmed they have agreed a deal with the 44-year-old.
“His contract term will be one-and-a-half years,” Karpin told uefa.com.
“We’ve chosen this specialist as we think that he is capable of setting out the team’s style and achieving good results.”
