BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentine midfielder Matias Kranevitter has joined Zenit St Petersburg from Athletico Madrid on a four-year deal, the Russian club announced on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old ended last season on loan to Seville but made his name at River Plate, where he won the Argentine league and the Copa Libertadores.

Kranevitter, who has eight international caps, is the fourth Argentine to join the Russian club this close season, following the signings of Leandro Paredes, Emanuel Mammana and Sebastian Driussi.
