    Nothing much in that report to be fair.

    To be fair, the article only says 'could be an option'. May well just be some fan site suggesting transfers like this one...

    The final line suggests it could be close:

    Who knows how accurate it is though...

    If we let him go without giving him a chance that will just be stupid.

    Take it with a pinch of salt, I'd suggest having looked at some of the other stories they've put out recently.

    Almost certain he'll be with us, would be fuming if we let him go. He's everything we're missing.

    If we want him, we'll get him.

    Lol, the latest Athletic article says that due to work permit issues he probably can't even join us until January anyway! What a mess.

    Think we need to sell and cash in if true

    Surely not. Our recruitment team would never make such errors.

    I'm just awaiting the news that Sarr has a 10m relegation clause in his contract.

    It would be immensely helpful if we was good enough to get a work permit. I’m assuming the ability to come here later in the season comes about by getting a Spanish passport.

    Yes, this story is no different to what Leventhal said the other day. They have just reaffirmed what we already knew that he cannot get a work permit until January at the earliest.

    Richard Hughes certainly wouldn't.

    Supposedly it should be feasible for Cucho to have received a Spanish passport after being in Spain for 2 years. He joined Granada on 8 July 2017.

    Luis Suarez joined Granada on 1 March 2016 then got Spanish citizenship in October 2019, so about 3.5 years later.

    Estupinan joined Granada in summer 2016 and got a Spanish passport earlier this year, so perhaps it somehow does actually take just over 3 years.

    I don't know why it seems to have taken such a longer length of time, but if it takes Cucho as long as it did Suarez then that would indeed bring things to January 2021, which ties in with the stories above.

    I guess we'll have to loan him again to La Liga then consider bringing him back in January. It does make it seem odd that the club made a show of him training here a few months ago, and that even Cucho himself has said that we might want him this season.

    I’d imagine there’s a period of time it takes the Spanish government to process the application, before he’ll gain citizenship. No doubt the Covid lockdown made processing times longer.

    Wonder how the 'B' word will impact things like work permits and foreign players in general?

    Penaranda had to wait a very long time before he got his passport, when he was on loan at Malaga in 2017-18, he expected to get the passport in the new year, but I think it took him until part way through last season to get it in the end
  30. Worth the wait though. "Like a new signing".

    Right. If it's anything like the US system, it'll take months from time of filing.

    Speaking of, did you naturalize yet?

    We completed the application for my daughters passport in December, and didn’t receive the physical passport until mid-July, so things are clearly pretty backed up with COVID.

    Yes, I naturalized a couple of years ago, mainly to make it quicker when getting through the border after flying back into Houston. Did you do it yet?

    Yeah, June last year.

    Figured it was a smart idea given that I didn't trust Trump not to do something stupid about my status.

    How long did it take you? My Green Card expires in 2023.

    I think it was almost a year from online filing to taking the oath.

    My green card technically expired while I was waiting to be processed, which made me a little nervous, but I didn't run into any issues.
