Lendoiro said on the past week that the team was already closed, but there are strong rumours coming from Poland about the signing of Paweł Brożek, a veteran striker that hasnít succeeded at Turkish club Trabzonspor AS.

It seemed that no more signing were going to happen at Deportivo, but there are strong rumors coming from Poland about the possible signing of striker Paweł Łukasz Brożek (28, Trabzonspor AS) ; he is veteran Polish attacker that scored 81 goals after 178 appearances with Polish club Wisła Krakůw.

On the past summer he moved to Turkish side Trabzonspor AS and failed to succeed there as he only made twelve appearances at the Turkish SŁper Lig (he only scored two goals). Now Trabzonspor and Brożek want to break the link and somehow he was linked with a move to Depor.

Since Monday several papers in Poland have been insisting that Depor is negotiating a loan spell with Trabzonspor; apparently the Galicians were offering Ä150,000 for the loan, while the Turks were demanding Ä200, 000 in a deal that would include a buyout option for Ä2.7 million. Meanwhile, in Turkey the media was reporting that the offer of Deportivo was for Ä500,000.

The agent of the striker, Robert Kiłdanowicz, talked with Polish paper Przegląd Sportowy and said that, "I confirm that Deportivo has become interested in the Polish international. There are still some details that need to be ironed out. Everything should be resolved in the next few days, He said.

Today, Trabzonspor is playing in Spain the play-offs of the UEFA Europa League against Athletic Bilbao; according to the media in Turkey a Deporís official traveled to the Basque country in order to rush the deal. But this information hasnít been confirmed by the Spanish media. Brożek is part of the team that traveled to Bilbao, however it isnít expected that he will take part of the game.

Despite the comments of the agent and the several reports, it is doubtful if this information is true; during the presentation of Xisco, president Lendoiro told to reporters that the team was already closed and that any other arrival will only occur if an exit is confirmed first. Besides, the club already covered the 25 slots for the regular season, so in order to allow the arrival of Paweł Brożek, first Deportivo must get rid of one player; as always the first candidate could be Rodolfo Bodipo, who doesnít count for new coach Oltra.
