The situation surrounding Besart Ibraimi is now clear.  He will be sent on loan from Sevastopol to Tavria for six months and Tavria will then have top priority to sign Ibraimi permanently if he impresses during the loan.  If he does not show enough with Tavria, Ibraimi will return to Sevastopol on 1 January 2012.  Sevastopol wanted to keep Ibraimi but they got relegated and the president of the club admitted that it would be tough to keep Ibraimi in the second division.  The loan worked for both sides as Sevastopol can receive good money for Ibraimi if he does well during his loan or he could return to Sevastopol for the second half of the season and help the club win promotion to the top Ukrainian division.  Sevastopol has the ambition to immediately return to the top tier of Ukrainian football.

Tavria finished in 7th place this past season and hopes to finish higher this year to book a place in a European competition.  They wanted to strengthen their attacking department and felt that Ibraimi would be a good addition.  Ibraimi made a good name for himself in Ukraine during the 2nd half of the season after transferring to Sevastopol from German club Schalke 04 during the 2011 January transfer window.  Ibraimi was named as the best player in the top Macedonian league in 2009 while playing for Renova and has made seven appearances for the Macedonian national team up to this point.
