Sky Sports and Lancashire Telegraph today report on progress in the transfer of Diego Penny to Burnley
Coronel Bolognesi and Peruvian International keeper, Diego Penny claims that only a work permit is required for the move to go through.
'My agent is handling the negotiations with Burnley,' Penny told El Bocon
'The last thing he said to me is that the only thing that is left to be done is obtaining my work permit to be able to play in England.
'Besides that, the negotiations are going in the right way I'd prefer not talking too much about it. I have to wait and be calm.
'To tell the truth I don't want to stay. I want to leave Peru to play in a better league and to have a better way of living, a better lifestyle.
'I want to improve, so if this transfer is done it will be a very good chance.'
However reading the comments above, I am not convinced getting that work permit will be all that straightforward. We were led to believe that we would need to go to appeal for the work permit since Penny had not played enough Internationals for Peru to qualify without appealing.
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?
The Lancashire Telegraph have now also highlighted that the Clarets had an initial application turned down with the club hopeful that the matter will be resolved by the Home Office panel at the Appeal this Friday.
However both player and agent seem keen to do everything in their power to bring the keeper to Turf Moor and it is refreshing to see another player with the desire to play for our club following Pato signing yesterday.
