4 Out, 3 In as Down Makes His Mark
New OB Manager Hans Down has wasted no time in reshaping his squad ahead of the start of the Superliga, with 4 players leaving, and 3 joining up the squad.
Rumours of Rasmus Falk's departure were confirmed, as he left for FC Twente in a deal worth £1.5m, while Central Midfielder Jacob Schoop moved to Citadella in a deal which made the club up to £275k. Mads Raben and and Cedric N'Koum left the club on season-long loans, moving to Hvidorve and FC Fredericia respectively.
In terms of incoming players, Guly do Prado moved to OB From Southampton, in a deal woth up to £110k, while Danilo Cortat and Alessandro Visconti joined up on free transfers to provide cover in the midfield and right-back positions.
Asked about his transfer dealings, Down had this to say: "Obviously We didn't see much of the money from Rasmus' transfer deal, with most of it supplementing the clubs coffers, and moving us away from Debt, but I think Guly will prove to be an intelligent piece of business for us, and I look forward to seeing how he performs. Also, Danilo and Alessandro are both young, and can learn a lot at this club, and I look forward to watching them grow.
However, he has hinted that maybe the transfer wheeling and dealing isn't yet over, adding: "Obviously our budget isn't great, but if the right offers come in, or the right players become available, there may well be some more movement before the window closes.
