Today’s press

  • Jose Alcides Moreno Mora, also known as Pepe Moreno (28), is very close to a return to Steaua Bucharest. The Colombian centre-forward left a very good impression last time he played for the Bucharest side, scoring 5 goals in half of season and producing a number of solid displays. Pepe Moreno is expected to rejoin his former colleagues in Turkey, on Monday, and he should increase the competition for a starting place upfront and especially put some pressure on Greek CFWD, Pantelis Kapetanos (26).
  • FC Timisoara made an attempt to buy the former U21 international Liviu Ganea (22), from their arch-rivals, Dinamo Bucharest. The promising forward was rarely given the chance to feature for Dinamo, collecting 15 appearances, in spite of making his debut back in 2006. Loaned to CS Otopeni (7 goals in 26 matches) and, this season, to Astra Ploiesti (6 goals in 12 matches), he was recalled in December and now is fighting for a place in the team with the likes of Marius Niculae, Florin Bratu, Claudiu Niculescu and Andrei Cristea. The tough competition encouraged Timisoara to come forward, but Dinamo refused an initial bid of 500.000 EUR, in spite of the player’s uncertain future on short and mid-term.

Marcel Popescu brings Paunovic to Craiova

  • Universitatea Craiova signed Ivan Paunovic (23), from Srem. The Serbian midfielder agreed to a short contract, until the end of the season, but with an option to extend it for four more years. Interesting enough, the player brought in Romania by FIFA agent Marcel Popescu had been training for the past couple of weeks with Astra Ploiesti, but failed to agree terms when it came to put pen to paper.
  • Although his move to Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt was officially announced, Vasile Buhaescu (22) switched sides today and went on loan to a second division club, Concordia Chiajna. The striker, a former U21 player for Romania, belongs to FC Vaslui, but would have had no realistic chance to feature in the second half of season, given the tough competition for a place in the team and the club’s ambition to try and mount a serious title challenge.
  • Dinamo and Astra Ploiesti, teams that were sharing the rights of two players, Georgian Paun (24, forward) and Eugen Craciun (23, full back), found an agreement that makes Paun a Dinamo player and transfers Craciun to Astra. If Craciun will continue to play for Astra, where he was on loan for the past two years anyway, Paun was re-directed to Politehnica Iasi, on loan until the end of the season, after a week or spent in Dinamo’s training camp from Turkey.
