Got to also get international clearance to come through so this may not actually complete until well into next week. Could be on the bench at Ipswich which might be something to look forward to for those paying the extortionate ticket prices there next week.

Good thing you put what club he plays for in parentheses, otherwise no one would have known who you were talking about.


Could have been talking about his brother Arianit instead .... wise-ass.

.....who's whole career consists of 12 games in the Swiss 5th tier so is clearly as globally well known as his brother.

RFC wrote:“Adrian is a forward with enormous potential who has played at a high level in Romania as well as in European and international football,” Stam said.

“He is an experienced player, who is quick, a constant threat to the opposition, good on the ball and who is comfortable playing on the left, on the right or even up front in a two.

“With the amount of games we have coming up, a player of his quality will make it easier for us to rotate a little more and give some players a rest if we need to, so I’m delighted to have him here as part of our squad.”

The move is subject to the normal ratification processes from the relevant football authorities and international clearance, but Popa - who will take squad number 25 - could theoretically be eligible to make his debut at Birmingham City on Tuesday night. In the process, the winger would become the first Romanian player to represent the Royals

I have a good feeling about this signing. I think he can be our Anthony Knockaert.

We've got Popa, Adrian Popa, I just don't think you understand.
He's better than Zidane, trickier than me nan,
We've got Adrian Popa.

I'll get my coat.

Most Brazilians seem to have good close control having grown up with less than bowling green standard pitches -I would guess that pitches in Romania are no better than ours. :wink:

Well, I googled his number of appearances but read about him when Shaquiri originally signed for Stoke

Was it not in Romania where a local council decided to leave a giant tree in the middle of a brand new pitch?
