With ongoing uncertainty surrounding Kristian Pedersen’s registration with the EFL, I decided to poll fans on whether the Danish defender will start on the opening day of the season.
Garry Monk has refused to confirm whether the £2.2m signing from Union Berlin has been given permission to play for the club, but the majority of people think the issue will be resolved before 4th August:
With nine days to go before the first game at St Andrew’s, I think every supporter is hoping that there is a swift conclusion to talks between the EFL and the club.
Monk seems to have been reassured by the club’s hierarchy that things will be resolved soon. He’s even keeping his eye on potential targets that could be signed before the transfer window closes on 9th August.
However, he also makes clear there has been “no final decision” on the transfer embargo, and the longer the wait goes on, the less chance he will have of making signings this summer.
