PGE GKS’s Costly makes Vaslui switch

BELCHATOW, Poland. Jan 24 — Carlo Costly has now officially joined FC Vaslui. On Friday he signed a 3.5-year contract – confirmed the Romanian club.

The Hondurarin international has been in Romania since Tuesday. It was there where he discussed the details of the contract agreement, and passed medical tests. FC Vaslui and PGE GKS Belchatow have already agreed on a transfer sum.
