  • CFR’s owner Arpad Paszkany denied all the rumors related to Arsenal’s interest in Lacina Traore (19). He admitted instead that Udinese is keeping tabs on the striker, who scored 4 goals in the league so far this season.
  • The American that Steaua is trying to sign is Josh Tudela (25), a central midfielder who played his last official match last summer, for LA Galaxy. He could become the second player bought by the Bucharest side from Major League Soccer, after the Colombian left footed midfielder Juan Carlos Toja (24), bought in 2008 from FC Dallas. Tudela comes as a free agent and will have to convince the staff in the next couple of months that he deserves a contract.
  • Mamadou Diakite (24), a central defensive midfielder from Belgian outfit Excelsior Mouscron, is coming to Romania to see Rapid’s facilities and discuss the terms of a possible deal.
  • Steaua keeps pressing FC Brasov, hoping to find a deal that would help the Bucharest club get rid of an unwanted player and strengthen the squad with a new aquisition. It seems that Steaua has offered the out-of-favor Dayro Moreno (24) on loan, after the initial 500.000 EUR offer for Portuguese full-back Rui Duarte (29) had been turned down, hoping to get FC Brasov’s board in a better mood. Dayro Moreno came to Bucharest from Once Caladas with the “wonderkid” label, but rarely lived up to the expectations and neither severe punishment nor the credit received from the new coach and management managed to change his attitude and approach.
  • Universitatea Craiova released the experienced utility man Florin Soava (31), although the player has been a regular (at left back, in central defense or in the midfield line) since his return to Romania, at the beginning of 2009. Soava had played in Russia since 2004, with spells at Spartak Moscow, Krylia Sovetov and Khimki.

  • Ronny Levy was officially presented today as the new coach of Unirea Urziceni. He signed a contract until June 2011 and has dismissed all the transfer rumors, stating that he’ll use this next period to figure out the team’s weak points. Unirea lost two important players, Tiberiu Balan and Dacian Varga, but seems to keep the excellent Argentinian Pablo Brandan, as the interest from VFB Stuttgart resulted in a “ridiculous” bid, according to the club’s manager Mihai Stoica.
  • Steaua’s owner announced that Bulgarian centre forward Krum Bibishkov has been already released, but Gigi Becali seems to have some problems in getting rid of Rafal Grzelak. The Polish midfielder earns 13.000 EUR / month and is under contract until June 2010.
  • Steaua is interesting in buying Rui Sandro Carvalho Duarte (29) from FC Brasov. Probably the best player on this position in Romania, the Portuguese right back was bought in 2008 from Estrela Amadora and FC Brasov thinks that he’s worth more than the half of million euro offered by Steaua.
  • CFR Cluj announced that a second transfer will be completed tomorrow, when Kasali Yinka Casal (22) is expected to sign a long term deal. The Nigerian comes from Swindon Town and plays at left back.
