Outside the Lines - 6.6: Liron Sharon on the warming transfer market (Walla system!)
It's getting closer. Midfielder Omri Altman underwent medical tests on Tuesday ahead of signing for Hapoel Tel Aviv, with the club waiting for test results before signing an agreement.
What is strange is that Larnaca claim tonight that an agreement has not yet been signed between them and Hapoel Tel Aviv regarding the transfer of the player for about 350,<> euros and that in recent talks there were small gaps, but it is believed that the medical tests are evidence that the Reds will pay the full amount they demanded.

After the appointment of coach Michael Valcanis and the signing of Jose Rodríguez, Hapoel Tel Aviv continues to look for foreign reinforcement and according to a report in Cyprus is interested in defender Kostas Pilas from champions Aris Limassol. Apart from the Reds, Standard Liege are also interested in a defender who has a contract for another season with the Limassol Greens.
The 24-year-old played for all of Cyprus' youth teams and from the age of 16 was in Arsenal's academy before returning to his homeland. He played for Anorthosis Famagusta and Ethnikos before being bought by Aris last summer for €40,20. He started last season on the bench, but went on to make <> league appearances – most of them as a left-back and one as a right-back – and cooked twice. He can also serve as a defender and was part of Aris' historic championship, when at the end of the season he was included in the league's best team.
