Squad news


23 Dec 2005
On January 1st the winter window will be open, Deportivo will try to find a destination for some players that don't count in Caparr??s' project since the list of the squad is overbooked with 26 names. Meanwhile names like Asier Riesgo are mentioned as possible reinforcements. The board meeting that will occur on the next week is also calling the attention of the media.

With the arrival of Javier Arizmendi the squad's list has been increased to 26 names, in this way the club's officials must find a slot for the Madrilian striker since la liga only allows 25 players in every team. Apparently the first candidates to leave Deportivo are C?©sar, Pablo Amo and Jes??s Mu?±oz. At his point the club continues to search for offers.

Who could be a surprise on that list is Fabricio Coloccini, the Argentinean defender doesn't want to miss the World Cup and for that reason he has considered a move in order to enjoy more minutes. On this week it was know that the Argentinean giants Boca Juniors and River Plate are interested on him, but a possible transfer or even a loan spell seems difficult since Caparr??s counts with him in the case that C?©sar or Pablo Amo leaves the club. Also the Argentinean clubs are living a complicate financial situation and Lendoiro won't let go so easily one of the gems that he has for the near future.

The list of possible arrivals is another thing that has been studied by Depor's officials. Sportpaper AS wrote that Caparr??s is thinking in Asier Riesgo (21) if Molina confirms his retirement at the end of the season. The Basque keeper is living his second season in Real Sociedad and Caparr??s believes that he's the right choice to replace the Valencian veteran, but the possible renovation of Molina shouldn't be discarded too, he said a few weeks ago that his final decision will be know at the end of this liga tournament.

Another candidate that could emerge is Sergio Paulo Barbosa 'Duda' (25). The Portuguese winger is an old wish of Lendoiro and currently he's living a hard time in M??laga. He refused to be sold on June in a transfer to Real Sociedad and also refused the renovation of his contract. For that reason he was excluded from the squad during several weeks, yesterday it was know that he presented a demand against M??laga claiming for his freedom. If he succeed Lendoiro could be tempted to sign him, a manoeuvre that could solve the wingers' problems that Caparr??s is living on the present season.

The club announced that on December 29th and 30th the annual board meeting  will take place in the Playa club. The main interest is to know the current situation of the Galician club since Lendoiro will present the financial results of the last twelve months. The budget for the period July/2005 - June/2006 will be also presented. Recently it was reported that Depor's president would try to introduce a petition claiming for the abolition of the rule that disallows the participation of socios owning more than 1% of the club's shares, but it hasn't been reported if this situation will occur. Also, it's probable that Lendoiro will talk about the operation searching the increase in the capital.
