MOSCOW, January 29 (R-Sport) - Turkey international Gokhan Tore has returned to Rubin Kazan after a scandal involving an alleged fraud case blew over, a source told R-Sport on Tuesday.
Tore signed from Hamburg in the summer in a reported €3 million move, but has only made six appearances for the Tatarstan club since.
He has been absent from the club, reportedly back home in Turkey, since late November, after his representative Georg Yablukov sent a letter to Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov claiming that Rubin coach Kurban Berdyev had a hand in attempting to extort €400,000 from the Hamburg deal.
Berdyev had called the case "a cynical attempt to discredit football club Rubin and reputation of people who are assigned with these illegal actions."
A source close to the situation told R-Sport that it had been resolved and that Tore, 20, joined up Tuesday with Rubin at their midseason training camp in Marbella.
New addition Yann M'Vila, signed from Rennes last week, also arrived at the camp Tuesday.
Rubin are seventh in the Russian Premier League, 12 points off CSKA Moscow's lead. They play holders Atletico Madrid in the first knockout round of the Europa League on February 14.
