SALT LAKE CITY–Yura Movsisyan is no longer one of Real Salt Lake’s transfer choices for the current transfer window, according to rslsoapbox.com.

In an interview on ESPN 700, Real Salt Lake technical director Craig Waibel said that Movsisyan, currently with Spartak Moscow, has decided to stay in Russia after Spartak was appointed a new head coach.

“Yura will not be joining us in this window,” Waibel said. “I had a great conversation with him, he’s in a good situation with Spartak.”

That ends Real Salt Lake’s interest in Movsisyan during this transfer window, Waibel said.

“Unfortunately for me, that’s an easy conversation,” he said. “I’m happy for Yura that he’s got a nice home and a place that wants to play him, but unfortunately, it wasn’t the answer that I wanted.”
