Discussion in 'Austria & Switzerland' started by RobtheAggie, Oct 16, 2013.
Xhaka might be on the move to either Inter Milan or to the EPL.
Schar is being chased by Lazio.
Add Dortmund to the list.
Man U chasing another Swiss youngster.
Inler to Arsenal
Sommer to Spurs or Newcastle.
Armando Sadiku to leave Lugano for FCZ in January. Nice to keep him in the country but Zurich need much more to reach their goals.
Schar is being chased by Arsenal and Dortmund.
Salah is drawing quite a bit of interest from EPL clubs. 20 million pounds worth of interest!
Liverpool appears to want Xhaka as a replacement for Gerrard. That means he would slowly increase his play in the EPL while Gerrard slowly decreases his time.
New rumor is that Man U wants both Salah and Schar fo 30 million pounds.
Stefan Frei was traded from Toronto FC to Seattle Sounders FC. This is actually a good move for him. Since he broke his leg in the pre-season before the 2012 season, he has only played 4 games in the past two seasons. In Seattle he will play before the largest crowds in the league, and a much better defense than he ever had in Toronto.
Nothing official yet, but reports out of Montreal are that Marco Schallibaum is out in Montreal.
Francois Affolter is leaving YB and going to FC Luzern at the end of this season. He will join Luzern in the summer of 2014. Just in time for European football.
We have had some movement over the past few days:
Yvon Mvogo's contract has been extended until 2018. Mvogois the new #1 keeper at YB with Wolfli's injury. They now have the youngest keeper duo in RSL history. Mvogo is 19 and his backup, David von Ballmoos is 18.
Also at YB, Jan Lecjaks (23) is rejoining the club from Valerenga in Norway. He was with loaned to the club from YB in the summer of 2013. He had 2 goals in 22 matches for Valerenga.
Having already played 5 times for the professional team, 19 year old Leonardo Bertone has signed a professional contract good until 30 Jun 2016. He has played twice for the Swiss U21 team.
Nenad Bijelic (23) has left the club after being with them for over 13 years! He scored 14 goals in 68 games for Wohlen in the Challenge League.
Daniel Panizzolo (27) will stop playing professional soccer and leave the club as of 31 Dec 2013. Prior playing 62 matches over 2.5 seasons with Locarno, he played with AS Eupen in Belgium and AC Prato in Serie C2 in Italy.
Aleksandar Zarkovic (20) has joined the club on loan from FC Basel. The former U19 Swiss International has joined the club until the end of June 2014. Zarkovic spent last season on loan to FC Vaduz and played 16 matches there.
Dominik Schiendorfer (23) is leaving Schaffhausen after 3.5 years with the club. He played in 88 matches since joining the club from FCZ. He is going to join FC Tuggen of the 1st League Promotion.
Zivko Kostadinovic (21) has signed a contract intil 30 Jun 2016. Kostadinovic in a goalie formerly of LSII, Stade Nyonnais, and FC Vaduz. He saw the most action with Stade Nyonnais in 2011/2012 with 22 matches.
Andre Goncalves (21) has signed a contract extension good through 30 Jun 2016. The former U17 World Champion has played 14 matches this season with 1 goal and 1 assist.
Josef Martinez, the leading scored of Thun this season, is leaving the club for his home club of YB. YB is ending his year long loan 6 months early. A massive blow for Thun as he was one of the most sucessful players on the field for them this fall.
Michael Dingsdag (31) has signed an extension for the rest of the season. He joined from FC Sion in Oct.
Sandro Reclari(29) has extended his contract for 6 more months until the end of June 2014. He originally joined the club in 2009, and acted as captain of the club last season. This season, he has only played 8 matches due to injury. Prior to this season, he has played 118 matches in 4 season for FC Chiasso.
Altin Osmani (24) is leaving the club after not having his contract extended this fall. He scored 2 goals in 14 matches this fall.
Ramon Egli (30) is leaving for non soccer related issues and will join FC Breitenrain in the 1st League Promotion for the spring. He had been with the club since 2006/2007 and had played 179 matches for the club.
First piece of good news on the transfer front for Vaduz, Philip Muntwiler (26) who was on loan from Luzern, has joined the squad until 30 Jun 2016. He played 10 times for Vaduz this past fall, and the team never lost with him on the field.
The club has decided not to renew the contract of Tunusian International captain Yassine Chikhaui (27). He has been with the club since the summer of 2007 and has played 100 matches with 16 goals. The major issue is that he is too often injured.
Kwang Ryong Pak (21) the North Korean has been loaned again from FC Basel for the remainder of the season. He played 5 matches with 2 goals and 2 assists before Basel recalled him. This is a big boost to the Vaduz attack.
I wish this lad good luck. I really rate him. Hopefully, he can get some minutes at FC Basel when returns.
This practice is what FC Basel does. They put their best prospects on Challenge League teams to give them match experience. Fabien Frei, Yann Sommer, etc the list goes on.
Ricardo Rodriguez is being chased by both Chelsea as well as AC Milan. Wolfsburg has made it clear that he will not be for sale in the winter transfer period, but the summer might be a different story.
Michel Avanzini (24) is leaving LS. The midfielder joined the club in 2010 and played 58 games with 4 goals. He joined LS from FC Gossau .
Simone Grippo (25) who has spent his time bouncing around various Italian divisions after being formed at FC Basel, and most recently played 9 matches in the RSL with Servette, has joined Vaduz. He had spent 6 months without a club since he was released from Servette. Payback? Vaduz really looks like they are going for promotion.
Pascal Feindouno is ver close to resigning with the club. The Guinean international has been very limited to 3 matches and 82 min for the fall season, but the only two victories that LS had, he played in. On the international scene, he has played 81 times and scored 30 goals for Guinea.
Liverpool is reported to have offered 9 million pounds for Salah, it appears that this is much less than Basel is willing to part with him for.
According to this article from Le Matin the Lausanne daily paper, FC Sion has signed three players from Le Mans FC, a 2nd division French club that was dissovled in October due to financial problems. Kervens Fils Belfort (21) played 45 matches with Le Mans and scored 5 goals. He has also played 12 times for the Haitian National Team and has scored 6 goals. He is a forward. Jason Buaillon (21) is a defender who played 29 times for Le Mans since 2009. Zhang Jiaqi (22) is listed as a defensive midfielder who was actually formed at Le Mans and came through their youth programs, despite being from China. That must be an interesting story how he ended up there. He played 12 times with 1 goal since being promoted to the 1st team in 2012.
The 2nd place club in the BCL has added their first reinforcement. Korede Aiyegbusi (25) joins the club from FC Haka in Finland. He formerly played in the MLS with Sporting Kansas City. The defender has played 31 games over the last 2.5 seasons. his contract is for the rest of this season, and possible the 2014-2015 season.
Johan Vonlanthen (27) has been loaned from GCZ where he saw very little playing time this fall, three total matches. If he were to become even a shell of his former self, this could greatly help the club in 3rd place chasing Servette and Vaduz for promotion to the ASL.
Landry Mouangue Otele (24) who was loaned by FC Wil to FC Aarau, will not play again for the rest of the season. He only played in 5 matches and the Sporting Director Urs Bachmann has stated that "If he does not find another club, he will play with the U21s". Ouch.
Sava Bento (23) has extended his contract with the club until the end of June 2014. The Portuguese midfielder was formed at FC Luzern but has been hampered by a multitude of injuries.
Daniele Romano (20) and Joel Geissmann (20) have joined the club from FC Aarau on loan for the rest of the season. Romano played twice for Aarau in the fall and Geissmann spent the fall with FC Baden of 1st League Classic.
