Yordan Miliev, the central defender who last played for Levski, signed a year-and-a-half contract with the club from Tetovo.  Miliev has been with Levski for the past 5 years (since January 2009), but did spend one half season on loan at Israeli side Ironi Nir Ramat HaSharon.  He also has been capped 3 times for the Bulgarian senior national team, all three coming in friendlies during 2010.

This season, Miliev featured in 12 of the 22 games for Levski in the Bulgarian top league, and 2 more times in the Bulgarian Cup.  He played 3 seasons with Macedonian national team player Darko Tasevski, winning the Bulgarian League and Super Cup in 2009.  The 26-year old Miliev started his career in the club Apoli before moving to Lokomotiv Plovdiv.  He then joined Levski before his decision to sign with Shkendija today.  Shkendija allegedly acquired Miliev despite interest from Serie B side Carpi who was also interested in adding the Bulgarian player.

Besides Miliev, Shkendija, so far, has officially signed the following players: Astrit Fazliu (Ferizaj, Kosovo), Nuri Mustafi (Ljungskile, Sweden), Muhamed Useini and Demir Imeri (both Rabotnichki), Bojan Vručina (Kaposvári Rákóczi, Hungary) and Denis Simijonović (loan - Winterthur, Switzerland).  In the coming days, Shkendija is also waiting for the arrival of Brazilian attacker Stênio Júnior who played for Pelister during the first half of the season.
