2019 / 2020 Transfer Rumors & Discussion (Female)

  • Guidetti wanted Mihajlovic as opposite before Sloetjes I believe...

    Mihajlovic as Oh does not fit in Guidetti's system, he does not take too much risk in reception...


    Vakıf's next season will be full of experiments and will be toughest in years...

    Probably middles will be more involved in offense like 2015 and they will play faster through OHs...

    One thing is sure Haak's performance will be the decisive factor, if she can be as good as 2016 Sloetjes, than Vakıf might win at least one title...

  • So next year Vakıfbank's foreigners will be:

    Rasic( no rumours of replacement, so her transfer news was bogus), Haak, Kelsey, Gabi, Grothues(I expect Bosetti to decline)

    The Turkish league only allows maximum 4 foreign players in the roaster for every match. Since they have Rasic and Haak, they only need 2 foreign OHs. The 3rd one doesn’t make any sense.


    Grothues isn’t a good choice for Vakifbank. Her attacking is very weak now. Gabi+Robinson/C. Bosetti would work.

  • Having 3 defensive OHs don't make any sense. Vakıfbank always had one big hitter in their starting-6. I don't think Zhu will leave anyway but if she does, Vakıfbank will go for another big hitter. Alternatively they can gamble on Ebrar as OH depending on what she will show this summer

  • Lang ping would want Zhu to not be exhausted before Olympics so it makes sense that Zhu would leave Vakif and go back to Henan or another team in China.


    I also agree that 3 defensive OH is very unlikely in vakif. If Ebrar becomes an OH, kelsey as the 2nd oh is enough for the team. Unless Ebrar messes up then they need an offensive replacement. Haak, Robinson, Rasic if she stays, plus one foreigner.

  • just see lots of news.it is said some chinese clubs want to get larson and hill.and these two want a 1 million dollors salary.i dont know if it is some way to improve their pay for ther offers.but all these two didnt deserve this price.both are system players and not in their prime time.even KIm in china is only 0.8 millin dollars.these news make me laugh

    Fang Yan said most of Chinese clubs don't know the market prices of volleyballers. The premium is still too high.

    My favourite roster of Chinese
    male NT:
    S - Li Run-ming, Zhan Guo-jun
    OP - Dai Qing-yao, Jiang Chuan
    OH - Ji Dao-shuai, Xia Run-tao, Liu Li-bin, Zhang Chen

    OP - Gong Xiang-yu, Zhang Chang-ning
    OH - Hui Ruo-qi, Zhu Ting, Liu Xiao-tong, Li Jing
    MB - Yuan Xin-yue, Yan Ni, Xu Yun-li
    L - Lin Li


    My avatar is Jiang Chuan. I hope more persons love him.

  • Last rumors in Italy are Bartsch in China and Stysiak in her place. Monza wants to sign Tandara 🤔.

    I heard the same about the polish girl.


    Bartsch's future is still unknown, 'cause AGIL choosed to change the opposite, but nothing has been decided so far for the other positions. They also made a try for a world class player and she was willing to sign for them, 'cause she liked the project, but few weeks later she got offers twice higher than what AGIL could give her and she won't go there anymore. So now AGIL is looking for other options and they are expecially looking for a team player, in order to create a strong chemistry, which was completely missed lately. Nizetich may stay in Novara.


    There's another rumor about Karch wanting Carlini full time with NT in order to prepare the OGs. Apparently Larson may have the same faith, but she also has a very high offer from a chinese team (one of those you can't say "no"), but that won't be a problem, because the chinese league ends in february/beginning of march.

    There are many rumors from the chinese league. Since the league is now fully pro, apparently the clubs want to make it the best in the world within a few years. Their recent improvements are pretty evident IMHO. And, considering they have tons of good players on each position, they may actually do it.

    They are really trying to make it the best in the world or much better. Also Lippmann is rumored to join Shangai. Moreover Olympics and of course money are going to change players mind which league to choose.

    I don't think it's fully pro, far from it actually, signing a few foreign athletes doesn't make it pro. Local players still can't go anywhere they want, I mean, Zhu Ting actually needs to hand in some of her salary to her old club. I also heard that internationals often train separately. And it's always those same clubs that are trying to sign foreigners, the rest of them are all locals. As for competitiveness, it's really not impressive, I know I would choose to watch Italian and Turkish league without a doubt.

    I'm beginning to think that the world class player AGIL were trying for was Sloetjes who also got offers from Chinese clubs that are willing to pay her more money. :win:

  • one thing i want to say.Chinese clubs are not stupid now.they cant offer more money than TL or Italy league. because China league is short and the transportation is more convenient than in Europe.so most foreign players can play volleball and also have lots of time to cure their old injuries. here is the price of Tandara 0.5 million dollors. so slotjes can get maybe 0.7-0.8 million if she can keep her best. and kim is 0.8 million.so we can guess her price if it is really some chinese clubs want to sign her

    Kim had received a similar salary as Fenerbahce when she played in China, her agency announced.

  • i still don't understand why Italian clubs want Magdalena Stysiak as OH. It's hard to play as OH when you are over 200cm. Maybe she will succeed much more if she plays as OPP. Their opponents will force her in reception. I remember the game between Russia and Dominican, we almost ruined their reception bcz of forcing Brayelin in reception. Kadochkina's situation is much more different than Magdalena. Bcz at least Kadochkina is 15 and she is not as toll as Magdalena Stysiak, at least they have 10cm difference. If they want her as OH, another choice of OH have to be lucky (Robinson, Bosetti sis, Rabadzhieva, Grotheus, etc) to cover her in reception.
