Het Nieuwsblad and La Dernière Heure convinced manager van Holsbeeck to talk about the several ongoing transfer files. The manager knows what to do this summer.
Oussama Assaidi: Yesterday, an article appeared telling about the player being lend to Queens Park Rangers. Assaidi denied this rumour and confirmed all options are still open. Also van Holsbeeck confirms this. "I still got 3 weeks left", says the manager. "But I focus on the players who are allowed to leave. But there is not much progress going on.
Guillermo Molins is being linked to his former Swedish club Malmö, but there is still no agreement due to financial issues. "The three parties have to feel like they are better off after the transfer. But that's not the case for Anderlecht yet."
A few days ago, there were some rumours about a possible return of Mbark Boussoufa. But Herman van Holsbeeck is clear: "This is nonsense."
Concerning the transfer of Mitrovic, Anderlecht will only communicate about this when the transfer is finalized. "The articles you read about in the Serbian press don't come from us. We only communicate when the transfer is a done deal. Sometimes it's better to keep silent."
Cheikhou Kouyaté could count on a new contract. Some people even suggest one of five years. "I informed the entourage of Kouyaté that we would like to meet eachother and discuss about our plans for this season. But his manager is still abroad."
Also Thomas Kaminski could count on an imoproved contract. Like this, Anderlecht hopes to convince Kaminski to stay. "It's up to him now. He still has a contract for three more years, but we made a new proposition to express our respect towards him. It's part of the game if he refuses", ends van Holsbeeck.
Van Holsbeeck could also tell something about the new players Fede Vico and Milivojevic. They could play in the friendy game against Olympiakos, but they still have some work to do. "Milivojevic still needs some time to adapt and will show his value for the team. Also Fede Vico still needs to get used to the team. Playing with the Spanish national team U19 is totally different than playing Champions League."
