Transfer news


24 Jul 2008
The media speculates that Deportivo is trying to sign central defender Rub?©n Pulido, player that might cover the departure of Pablo Amo. However, Lotina already said that nobody will come to the club if the Madrilenian defender leaves. Meanwhile, Depor is already negotiating with Malaga for the loan of Adrian, while Jairo and Rodri could end in Segunda.

Rub?©n Pulido (29) continues to be linked with Deportivo. The Galician club has been following the Madrilenian striker since he was playing at Getafe and didn’t lose his track after he signed for UD Almeria one season ago. Now, sportpaper Marca appoints that Lendoiro is thinking in him as the replacement of Pablo Amo, defender that could join Zaragoza within the next days.

Marca appoints that together, Piscu, Juanan and Pulido, will give more security to Lotina since the Basque coach is aware of the physical problems suffered by Lopo on the past campaign and also of the continuous exits of Coloccini in order to play for Argentina’s national squad. However, Marca forgets to appoint that Lotina already has Z?© Castro available in his squad and that the Basque coach already said that nobody will join the team in case that Pablo Amo leaves.

Anyhow, it seems that Deportivo already maintained contacts with Pulido and also with Almeria. It shouldn’t be discarded that his incorporation is linked to a possible departure of Coloccini. It has been rumoured the price of the defender is near to the €1.5 million and that his salary will reach the €600,000.

In other transfer news, Deporte Campe??n (DxT) wrote on Thursday’s issue that Deportivo and M??laga are already negotiating the loan of the striker Adri??n. Something that was confirmed by the spokesman of the club, Rafa Carpacho �There are conversations with Malaga, but we still have to talk a lot� He also confirmed the negotiations will continue on Monday. The Asturian attacker already confessed that Malaga is the best option for him.

Meanwhile, Jairo could continue playing for Alav?©s. The Asturian playmaker performed during part of the past season with Fabril and later he was loaned to Alav?©s in Segunda Divisi??n. He played 10 games there and scored 1 goal (233 minutes on the pitch). He left a positive impression and now Alav?©s wants him back. Finally, defender Rodri has several offers in Segunda Divisi??n and will be probably be loaned again. The Catalan played at Poli Ejido during the past campaign (25 games and 2,115 minutes on the pitch).
