The 31- year old Portuguese centre forward, who was under AEK's radar, will eventually continue his career in FC Kuban Krasnodar.
Hugo Almeida was in advanced talks with AEK, but the story didn't have a happy end for the Greek team. The main problem was Almeida's refusal to play in Football League- not even for the next six months.
So, after his release from Cesena he decided to sign with Kuban, but only till summer. Could this mean that AEK will have a shot at him again in six months?
