Didi to Leixoes
CFR Cluj loaned the striker until the end of the current season. It’s not a loss for the Romanian outfit, as Didi (Cleidimar Magalhães Silva) never made it back into the team, after a long injury that seriously affected his past two seasons.
Considered one of the best players in the league a couple of years ago, the creative forward, who plays best as a second striker, will try to help Leixoes avoid relegation and will return to Cluj for the last year of his contract, which is due to expire in June 2011.
Didi featured so far in 52 league games for CFR scoring 12 goals, but faced tough competition for a place in the team this year (only seven appearances, all as a sub), with Yssouf Kone – probably the best CFWD in the league – and the talented Lacina Traore always ahead of him.
