Brown Ideye’s is on a five-year contract.
Ideye’s signing follows closely on the heels of Dynamo’s move for compatriot Haruna Lukman from Monaco. The Ukrainian champions also have Ayila Yusuf and Frank Temile in their squad.
“It’s an easy decision to make since I know about the club from European competitions already, so it wasn’t difficult to make up my mind,’ Ideye told BBC Sport, a day after Dynamo defeated their rivals Shaktar Donetsk 3-1 in the Ukrainian Super Cup.
“I saw the Super Cup game with Yusuf and Lukman playing, these are people I know already from the national team.
“I feel good knowing I have friends here and with the other players, it promises to be an exciting time for me at this club.”
The 22 year-old scored 15 goals in France last season and hopes to become an instant hit with his new side.
“In football challenges come with a new club and I think this is a big one for me now.”
“I have to work hard, get into the team and then convince the coach that I am good enough to start regularly.
“I have huge ambitions and playing and scoring regularly should help me achieve them,” Ideye said.
