Another loan deal for Varga and Balan

March 3, 2010 Leave a comment
  • The most desired package finally found a buyer! Dacian Varga (25) and Tiberiu Balan (29) will move to Rapid, after they spent the first half of season playing for Unirea Urziceni, in a similar deal. Varga left a very good impression especially in the Champions League group stage, but Vasile Siman only agreed to offload both of them, which made the negotiation very difficult. In spite of FC Timisoara’s interest, Rapid ‘s owner landed the deal and both wingers will join the Bucharest side today.

    Wesley gets a wage cut instead of a raise

    • Brazilian forward Wesley Da Silva Lopez loses 25% of his current wage and will be sent to FC Vaslui’s reserve team, for an undefined period of time. This is the punishment announced today by the club’s board, angry that the club’s best player of the season refused to play in the first official game of the year, against Gaz Metan Medias. Wesley (29) was upset that FC Vaslui refused to negotiate at least an offer of 2 mil. EUR from Al-Wasl and had demanded a wage rise to continue playing for Adrian Porumboiu’s club. FC Vaslui motivated its choice by saying that the offer was presented by an agent and that Al-Wasl denied interest in the player when questionned on the subject, but stated that the Brazilian is now up for sale, in case a concrete and decent offer comes along.
    • Steaua finally got his man, as Gora Tall (24) arrived in Romania last night, completing the loan from APOP/Kyniras. The Senegalese central defender has big chances to gain a place in the first eleven right away, as Steaua is looking for a quick replacement for Eugen Baciu, who got the axe, after making obscene gestures towards the fans during the 3-1 loss against Ceahlaul.
    • Portuguese full back Rui Duarte (29) returned to FC Brasov, one and a half months later than he was supposed to. With talks about his chances to return to the squad in a short while, there is unrest among his team-mates, especially given his atitude, as he behaved like nothing had happened and didn’t even explained or appologize in the locker.  With Steaua still very interested in his services, in spite of his obvious lack of professionalism, Rui Duarte probably hopes that the board will agree to release him while they can still get a good price for him.

    De Zerbi has postponed his arrival to CFR

    • Poli Iasi – Rapid and Pandurii – Astra will be played, after both home teams have settled the financial problems that had forced the Romanian Professional League (LPF) to announce that these two teams risk of not being allowed to play in the first round.
    • Steaua‘s owner, Gigi Becali, confirmed that the club has finally reached an agreement with APOP/Kyniras from Cyprus, regarding the much negotiated transfer of Senegalese central defender Gora Tall (24). Steaua will pay 70.000 EUR for his loan until the summer and 130.000 EUR for a permanent deal.
    • Roberto De Zerbi (30) is still in Italy, although he signed a contract with CFR Cluj. Coach Andrea Mandorlini is fully aware of the midfielder’s medical problems, who is expected to continue his recovery for at least two more weeks, and will probably leave him out of the club’s most important games of the season.
    • Ceahlaul’s most important transfer, Cosmin Barcauan (31) will miss the debut match, against Steaua, as OFI refused to release his work permit, until the central defender sent an official complaint to FIFA.
    • International Curtea de Arges officially anounced the signing of George Blay (29). The right back spent three seasons in Romania, playing for Dinamo Bucharest, where he was brought by former coach Mircea Rednic, but hasn’t been able to find a team since his departure from the red and white outfit, in the summer of 2009.
    • Liviu Ganea (21) returns to Astra Ploiesti, where he had already spent the first half of season, on loan from Dinamo. It seems that the conflict between Astra’s boss Ioan Niculae and Dinamo’s board is history (the wealthy Niculae being a big fan of the Red Dogs!) and now the small club from Ploiesti can count again on two players that left a good impression in the first half of season, Ganea and the full back Eugen Craciun. Half way through the season, Ganea is Astra’s top scorer, with six goals scored in twelve games.
