Should we be worried about Salisu taking this long?

To be honest I was more worried that the quiet time between last week's reports and the formal announcement had not already turned into a collective forum panic attack about how we'd been gazumped, the fans have been duped, the club are useless, we can't get deals over the line, laughing stock etc etc etc.

 

Come on forum suicide squad, start getting restless already. It's what summer is all about.

That article does not say Wolves are 'back in for him'. It is a random journalist suggesting that they should bid for him. It is also an article published on 29th May!

Has anyone thought, bearing in mind the positive reports in the media that he has signed, that the reason for no announcement is that they are waiting final clearance for a work permit. Be silly to jump the gun even if the club are confident he will get one.

That Semmens bloke can talk the talk on his glamorous cosy chats with the BBC but it's pretty obvious we've been caught napping with our pants down.

Didn't hear the interview. Did he say he was "relaxed" about it ? If so he's learnt from the Grand Master in the Art of Dither.

Was also hoping for headlines about not doing business with North London Yobbos, but unless it's gone unnoticed by the media, he's already failed t the 'Rupert test' to hold office.

If he flew over from Spain he'd need to be quarantined anyway.

Would be ludicrous to believe that very likely statement :)

This is the important bit from the president of Rennes - "“Unfortunately, we knew that Mohamed preferred the Premier League because he is English-speaking. We respect his choice. We had doubts about his capital to obtain the work permit in England. It seems he acquired it. We were his first choice in case of not obtaining the permit. The central defender position is the priority of our transfer window" (source https://www.footmercato.net/a3910090425056081055-rennes-nicolas-holveck-tres-pessimiste-avec-guirassy-et-salisu) confirming we have a work permit. Looks done and dusted!

Calling him "Southampton FC defender Mohammed Salisu" sounds like this chap thinks it's done?

That's a bit odd, unless he has some sort of second nationality? I don't think I have ever heard of players not wanting to play for their countries.

They've only played twice since the African cup of nations. Its a very strange comment in general. (both matches he was called up for)

I’ve seen some stuff on Twitter about him holding out to play for Spain, but I’m not sure if/how he is eligible.

He'd have to have an existing nationality for them, otherwise I think it takes a while for citizenship. Only argentinians, maybe Brazilians I think can get fast tracked, I think it only takes them about two years.

Valladolid reporter:

The transfer of Salisu has been closed since last weekend, the #pucela cannot announce it, Southampton will do so when it sees fit, but everything is signed.

Like I said earlier Saints would get into a load of fecal matter if someone didn't quarantine after flying in from Spain..

How can they do pics video etc, without the Covid 19 stuff being done?

Aren't the rules different for professional sports people? They were when the Quarantine was first muted back in May
