The Premier League has announced that it will grant applications from clubs to complete transactions after the 5.00pm deadline providing that:
* the Board receives email confirmation from the two Clubs involved (including, for the avoidance of doubt, a foreign club if one is involved) that a deal has been agreed in principle; and* the Club signing the player can satisfy the Board that the prevailing weather conditions have prevented the signing from being completed by the 5.00pm deadline.
I'm not sure it will involve ourselves, but with only two hours remaining we are fast running out of time to conclude any deals.
No update on Santa Cruz one way or the other, but I still have a feeling we will still come away with another deal before the deadline.
Or is that wishful thinking?
