The Mirror journalist James Nursey has contradicted blogger Daniel Ivery’s report that Kristian Pedersen is now registered as a Birmingham City player with the EFL.
Ivery revealed on his Twitter account yesterday that he believes the full-back is eligible to play for us in the Championship.
However Nursey doesn’t believe this to be the case, and that the club still have work to do in order to have their transfer embargo lifted:
re: latest on #BCFC ‘s transfer embargo , club still trying to get it lifted & they’ve said to new boy Pedersen , who is in limbo, that it will be lifted in time for him to play season opener https://t.co/DUoVWFCmGJ going to be major nightmare for Blues, KP, Dong & Monk if fail

Of course, it would be majorly disappointing if the reported embargo stays in place until the end of the transfer window. However, it depends on who you believe and how you look at it.
Ivery was the first to report the issue with Pedersen in the first place, and if he now believes the Dane is registered, I would be more inclined to believe him anyway.
Like every fan, I’m just praying this can all be resolved as soon as possible. Do you think Pedersen will start against Norwich? Let me know in the poll:
