MOSCOW, February 6 (R-Sport) - Spartak Moscow have agreed a deal to loan striker Welliton back to his home country of Brazil for a spell with Gremio, the Russian club said Wednesday.

Welliton has been with Spartak since 2007 and has been Russian Premier League top scorer with the team in two different seasons, but has been frozen out amid a recent influx of strikers, including Nigeria’s Emmanuel Emenike.

Welliton will spend the rest of 2013 at Gremio, subject to a medical examination upon his arrival in Brazil on Wednesday. Reports in Brazil this week have linked him with transfer to Gremio's rivals Flamengo.

He has played 133 games for Spartak, scoring 61 times.

So far this winter, Spartak have signed Armenian-American forward Yura Movsisyan, Italy center-back Salvatore Bocchetti, and sent Dutch midfielder Demy de Zeeuw on loan to Anderlecht.

Two rumored departures have failed to materialize, with Emenike and Ireland winger Aiden McGeady both still at the club.

The Russian transfer window closes February 24.
