    So........... Is this actually confirmed anywhere? None of the regular blog people seem to have mentioned it. Goff, Ives, etc.

    No. I think it's unlikely that it will be confirmed until the transfer window opens.

    Hi there !

    It's not a big problem for us... We have Wasilewski and we had a player called Stanislav Vlcek :)confused:)

    As one of my belgian mates said, it's really nice to come here and read all the good words you all have said about our teams or players. It's pretty far from what we are accustomed with.

    I just found something interesting...
    Have a look : http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacha_Kljestan


    Hope this will turn official asap.

    Hello, Lang and Tim and everyone else from Anderlecht and the vicinities.

    Since the US has imported Muscles from Brussels, don't think of this as an even exchange.

    Re: Sacha Kljestan to Anderlecht

    This post is completely off topic, so I'll find a way to incorporate it into the thread because it's interesting and I just stumbled upon it. Speaking of crazy names, imagine if Sacha Kljestan transferred to FC Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch in Northern Wales or Taumata­whakatangihanga­koauau­o­tamatea­turi­pukakapiki­maunga­horo­nuku­pokai­whenua­kitanatahu United in New Zealand (The soccer clubs aren't real, but the places are! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu

    Kljestan for 3.5 mil? with 6 months left on contract? if that is true that is an outstanding bit of business. Congrats to Kljestan if true thats a fantastic move for both parties. He needed to get out of MLS, this was necessary for his development because it was obvious he stagnated after Camp Cupcake 2009. I still have hope for Kljestan, this isnt a case of EJ where he wont improve. Kljestan still has upside to develop. If this happened earlier he might have had a chance for SA. But hey, champions league play, that what its about.

    Kljestan for 3.5 mil. that gets me to thinking, this is an outstanding time for US players to move abroad because of the world economy combined with lots of clubs being in financial straights, Americans will certainly be viewed as a bargain during this time. If a club like Cologne is too stingy to pay up 5 mil for a talent like Tosic, that says all you need to know really.

    I think that was the supposed price when his stock was highest. Can't see the alternative being possible tbh.

    Re: Sacha Kljestan to Anderlecht

    I'm a little skeptical of this because there still doesn't seem to have been any confirmation of Costigan's initial report.

    On the other hand, it's a story about a player who didn't make a World Cup team transferring the the league of a country whose team didn't make the World Cup. Probably kinda hard to get too many soccer journalists to pay attention to anything happening outside of South Africa right now.

    Hi,

    Kljestan can play multiple positions. He can play forward. He can play in central midfield. He can also play on the right side of midfield. He is of good height and physique. He has strong endurance.

    They speak about him in the belgian newspapers today.

    Our manager says "not done yet".

    Never seen Kljestan but would imagine he is to replace Lucas Biglia as holder; string speculation he will move at last in summer

    Re: Sacha Kljestan to Anderlecht?

    I would be really surprised if Biglia would be transfered this summer. He's our best player by far but there hasn't been a lot of interest in him lately.. Like I said before the team spirit is great after last season so nobody really want to go anywhere. Only Van Damme is being transfered (which was a relieve for 90% of the Anderlecht fans :cool:) and perhaps Boussoufa is leaving too if he get's an offer which is too good to turn down. So if Kljestan comes to Anderlecht it's probably as a replacement for Van Damme (Left Midfield) or Boussoufa (Left Winger) ;)

    Statement attributed to unnamed representative of Chivas USA:

    http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-9328-Chivas-USA-Examiner~y2010m6d4-Goat-notes-for-6410

    This report out of Belgium claims an agreement has been reached between Klestan and RSCA, but a deal is not yet agreed upon with Chivas. It also mentions the offered price several years ago was 2.5 million Euros.

    Not Biglia, not this year. Maybe next year.

    Hey yanks, I think we will need a second left fullback in case of Deschacht got wounded. Don't ya have an idea ? xD
