The signing ceremony, which will precede the unveiling, will hold at the headquarters of Gazprombank, owners of Fakel-Gazprom Orenburg based in Moscow.
Aruna who is a Nigerian will undergo a medical before the singing and unveiling ceremonies.
Also, the necessary work permit needed by Aruna will also be obtained by the management of the club this week ahead of their league match on Friday against Samara at the Russian Table Tennis Centre in Moscow.
Aruna joined the Russian 10-time champions early this year from Bundesliga side TTC RhönSprudel Fulda-Maberzell for the remaining part of the 2022/23 season.
He joined alongside Chinese internationals An Yan and Hongyu Chen and they are expected to continue the team tradition of dominating the lucrative Russian league this season.
An elated Aruna said after his arrival in Moscow at the weekend that the reception accorded him by the club management would surely inspire him to give his best in the league.
“I am really impressed with what I have witnessed since my arrival on Saturday because the organisation was top-notch and I can’t wait to start playing for the club. There is no doubt that I will be playing in one of the best leagues in Europe with a top club as well. I am so excited and I am indeed looking forward to my first match for the club this weekend,” Aruna said.
