Transfer news


16 Aug 2014
It seems pretty clear now that the five players at the door out are Arizmendi, Rudy, Seoane, Borja Bastón and Juan Carlos. Meanwhile, the arrivals of Zuculini and Mitroglou remain open. Centre-back Rodrigo Moledo linked with Depor.

No official moves completed by Deportivo during Friday. The club continued to negotiate the pending arrivals to close the team. But nothing has been sealed, starting with the arrival of centre midfielder Bruno Zuculini (21). The Argentine player is eager to join Depor, but the Galicians have been unable to reach an agreement with Manchester City FC.

Neither striker Konstantinos Mitroglou (26) has been signed. Depor haven’t reached an agreement with Fulham FC, tough late at night Sportapaper Marca reported that the Galician outfit and the Premier League club were close to reach an agreement for the loan of the player.

The latest name linked with Deportivo is Rodrigo Modesto (26, Metalist Kharkiv). The Brazilian centre-back performed last season at the Ukrainian Premier League. It’s an operation that was activated as the signing of Henrique Sereno continues to be in a dead point.

About the exits, the list of picked players for the last friendly game of the pre-season is clearly revealing the intentions of coach Víctor Fernández. For the meeting against SD Ponferradina five players from the first team weren’t picked: full-back Diego Seoane, playmaker Juan Carlos, winger Rudy, plus strikers Borja Bastón and Javier Arizmendi.

The intention of Deportivo is to loan Juan Carlos and Seoane, the case with Borja Bastón is more complicated as he joined the club in a complex operation with Atlético Madrid originally reported as a two-tear loan. With Rudy and Arizmendi the intention is to rescind their contracts.
