The 28-year-old has featured in 25 league games across two seasons at the club.
“The Reds and Blacks rented Locomotiv defender Brian Idowu. The loan agreement with the Nigerian defender is calculated until the end of the season,”reads a statement on FC Khimki’s official website.
“We welcome Brian to Khimki and wish him successful performances for our team.”
Idowu will look to make his debut for Khimki in today’s league clash against CSKA Moscow at the Rodina Stadium.
