Dynamo Kiev have completed the signing of exciting Desna Chernihiv talent Andriy Yermolenko.

Dynamo coach Anatoly Demianenko recently announced that he had found a 'New Andriy Shevchenko' at a press conference.

Kiev vice-president Joszef Szabo has expressed his enthusiasm for the deal as the 17-year-old arrives on a five-year contract.

"This talented boy can become a top class player," said Szabo (pictured).

"He will have to get used to working hard.

"I hope he will turn into a top international."

Desna have likened Yermolenko to Oleg Blokhin rather than Shevchenko due to his exceptional pace.
