According to new rule of Romanian Handball Federation – three foreign players per team, HCM Constanta began to “clean” the squad and the first targets are three Serbian players. Former THW Kiel line-player, Milutin Dragicevic, ex-Ademar Leon playmaker, Dalibor Cutura and left wing, Predrag Vujadinovic.

– Cutura and Dragicevic have large contracts, but their performances at the EHF Champions League weren’t to convincing. They got option to stay with lower salaries or to leave the team as free players. We want to sign another right back and that means that Vujadinovic has to go on loan – said Constanta director, Ali Nurhan.

Currently, HCM Constanta has two foreign players in the roster – Branko Angelovski and Aleksandar Adzic.

Spanish back Havier Humet signed contract with Ivry.
