Transfer news


25 Jan 2006
The first departure of the winter market has been confirmed. Defender Pablo Amo will play for Valladolid until June after Deportivo and the player reached an agreement. This means Lendoiro is starting to take Caparr??s’ advice in order to reduce his squad. The next names on departure list could be 'Toro' Acu?a and C?sar.

Pablo Amo has a contract that expires in 2007 and for the moment he will spend the rest of the season on loan.  The amount of money that Valladolid will pay in the process is around €180,000.

Pablo Amo arrived at Deportivo in the summer of 2002.  He was an emergency signing since Jorge Andrade, who was purchased a few weeks before, sustained an injury that kept him out of the team for six months. Pablo Amo has never had the confidence of Irureta and Caparr??s and has only played 18 La Liga matches so far. Tired of been overlooked, the defender took the decision to search for a new team, something coach Caparr??s understood.

Valladolid is currently occupying the third spot in the Segunda, a position that for the moment has given them a place in the next Primera season. Despite their good standing, Valladolid's officials are trying to reinforce their defensive line.  In this sense, Pablo Casar has been signed too and the club is starting to refer to this new defensive duo as the 'Pablos'. Amo will be presented on Friday with his new team.

These days it has been rumored that defender C?sar has an agreement with Bolton.  After discarding the options in Spain it seems that the future of the Asturian defender is in the Premiership.  However, newspaper La Opini??n is claiming that SS Lazio is also trying to incorporate the player.  For the moment these are only speculations, but Lendoiro could try to make a move since the market will be closed next Tuesday.

'Toro' Acu?a is another player who could leave soon.  Cerro Porte?o in Paraguay is interested in the player.  An official of the club confirmed that he presented an offer to Acu?a's agent, but the media in Paraguay don't believe the operation will be fulfilled since the player hasn't responded.
