Tiberiu Balan, of Sportul Studentesc, has joined Poli on loan until the end of the season. The 27 year old midfielder has been capped six times at international level for Romania, but his last two seasons were plagued with injuries. Being a player of high quality, if he manages return to his previous form, there is no doubt as to whether the team will need him or not.
On another note, it has been brought to my attention that Jonathan McKain signed with Wellington Phoenix, a New Zealand based team. It's good to see players of some integrity still exist, McKain having promised that he would only leave Poli for a foreign team - which he did. It's too bad that it happened under these circumstances, but surely, there is always more behind things than we can see.
