  • Andres Felipe De Souza Galiassi (29) ended his loan spell at Kasimpasa and agreed to move to Unirea Alba Iulia, until the end of the season. The Brazilian centre-back still belongs to CFR Cluj, where he collected 71 matches in the first division, before being sent to Turkey, alongside Argentinian centre-forward Diego Ruiz (29).
  • After completing the loans of Vasile Buhaescu (21 years old, right midfielder & forward), Hristijan Kirovski (24 years old, striker) and Neven Markovic (22 years old, left back), all from FC Vaslui, Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt takes also on loan Arthur Patras (21 years old, left winger). The U21 international from Moldova belongs to FC Timisoara and spent the first half of season on loan to Otelul Galati.
  • Julius Woobay (25) returns to Cyprus, after three consecutive seasons in Romania. He will play at Apollon Limassol until the summer, on loan from Universitatea Craiova. Before joining the Romanian club in 2007, the attacking midfielder from Sierra Leone had also played over 60 matches for Nea Salamina.
  • Leixoes announced an agreement with Rapid’s out-of-favor striker Joao Paulo Pinto Ribeiro (29). The Portuguese player is still in Romania, though, where he will try to find an agreement to end his current deal. Rapid has been trying to offload the player for some time now and would relish the opportunity to stop paying a huge salary for a mediocre striker, who scored 3 goals in 40 matches.

Wobay – available until the summer

The Sierra Leone midfielder Julius Woobay (26) has been granted a move on loan wherever he wants, until the end of the season. Universitatea Craiova accepted the player’s request, who feels jaded at Craiova and didn’t even tried to impress new coach Marc Wotte.

The attacking midfielder is in Romania since 2007 and has always been an important player for Universitatea, but this year he has played below his ability and only featured as a rotation player, with 7 starts and other 7 appearances from the bench, scoring twice in the process.

Woobay plays best as a wide midfielder – but has also featured in defense, when required – has good technical skills and creativity, plus decent workrate, as well. He likes to take on his direct opponent, relying on skill rather than pace. Still, he lacks consistency and can go from outstanding to mediocre or even worse from one week to the other and rarely managed to stand out as THE threat in this decent team that now faces a tough battle to avoid relegation, in the second half of the season.
