Penny for Our Work Permit Appeal Thoughts?

Penny for Our Work Permit Appeal Thoughts?

According to today's Sunday Papers Burnley boss Owen Coyle will have to win a work permit appeal to sign Diego Penny.



It would appear that the number of International caps he has collected for his national side, Peru falls short of the requirement to secure a work permit without appeal.

To make the situation worse it has also apparantly come to light that the keeper has missed out on two games while he was negotiating the deal. Peru played out a 1-1 draw with Columbia in a World Cup qualifier yesterday with Penny not even on the bench.

So from local media reports that it would be a breeze to sign the keeper and obtain the necessary paper work, we find that another signing has hit the buffers in a frustrating last few weeks where so far none of the Clarets targets have been signed to date.

The need to go to appeal will send shivers down the spine of the club as they recall in the past the failed attempts to secure the services of Jamaican international,Luton Shelton (now with Sheffield United after a spell in Denmark) and Macedonian international & former Baggie's player, Artim Sakiri. An appeal to obtain a work permit is required if a player does not meet the criteria of 75% of international appearances over the past two years for his national side. These matches also have to be special games (Category A eg World Cup Qualifiers etc) with some matches such as friendlies not counting. Penny has played just two of the last nine Category A Internationals with another two on the bench. So 44% of matches compared to the 75% required? Ever get the feeling we are going to struggle again?

For heaven's sake, if this is true, yet another example of shocking PR and it has to be said incompetence by the local media building ur hopes up without doing their homework, It cant be too difficult to work out how many games hes played for Peru and tally up with legal requirement!!

Berisha was under the 75% in two years and we were very well represented in the hearing to bring him to Burnley on that occassion. If we have a good appeal team then we should be ok I would have thought.
