2016 / 2017 Transfer News

  • Michael Andrei (GER, MB) from Ajaccio to swd powervolleys Düren.

    Christian Dünnes (GER, Op) and Lukas Bauer (GER, MB) will remain another year at United Volleys Rhein/Main.

    Vital Heynen to VfB Friedrichshafen.

  • SESI-SP next season:

    Bruno (S) and Lucão (MB) coming from Modena.
    Theo (OPP), Murilo (OH), Douglas Souza (OH), Aracaju (MB) and Serginho (L) all stay. Source

    Looks like a real contender imo. Nice to see Douglas and Aracaju both staying; although it was their first official season as starters, they were clearly among the best in their positions in the league. Gustavão (MB) and Riad (MB) will likely leave.

    As Heynen is leaving Tours (according to my source also Phillip Collin), Gianpaolo Medei (Beauvais) should take over French powerhouse. As I remember the last time Tours was coached by Italian they won Champions League :whistle:

  • It's official: Wallace (OPP) and Éder (MB) left Sada Cruzeiro and joined Funvic/Taubaté. Wallace is leaving due to the ranking, as the team already has 3 other 7-point players (William, Leal and Isac). Source

    Considering the latest rumors, Sada's new lineup will probably be William-Evandro, Leal-Filipe, Simon-Isac, Serginho.

  • Im surprised he decided to go play there instead of taking some time off before the World League.

    Zaystev will rest during the World League, which will be usefull for young players in order to get a little bit of experience. I bet that Nelli will be in the line-up, or maybe Vettori even if, just like Zaystev, he should rest as well
