Talented Chelsea academy graduate Tino Anjorin has been given the no.10 shirt at his loan club Lokomotiv Moscow.

Lokomotiv Moscow retired the No.10 shirt in honour of Dmitri Loskov, their greatest-ever player but brought it out of retirement for the 19-year-old Chelsea loanee.

The shirt had been retired for eight years before it was brought out of retirement for Anjorin, which shows how highly-rated the attacking midfielder is.

In fact, the legend himself, Loskov, their all-time leader in appearances and goals, and who became an assistant coach at the club after retiring, presented Anjorin with the shirt.

Anjorin joined Lokomotiv Moscow on loan with the Russian side having an option to sign the attacking midfielder for £17million. The Blues also have a buyback clause of £34million.
