With reports suggesting that the club have been hit with a transfer embargo,  the prospect of signing any new players this summer is now looking slim.

At the time of writing, there has been no confirmation yet from either the club or the EFL that we have been banned from making transfers, but that may quickly change.

Before that happened, I polled supporters over the weekend about the prospect of signing Jack Marriott from Peterborough. Two-thirds agreed that a move for the 23-year-old (who scored 33 goals in all competitions last season) would be a good idea:

Things can certainly turn around quickly in football! On Friday, I was debating whether we could match the Posh’s asking price of £5m plus add-ons for the striker. Now, it seems likely we won’t have anyone coming in through the door.

It’s looking like a tough situation for Garry Monk if the reports of the embargo are true. What do you think of the situation? Let me know in the comments.

  • Why can insolvent clubs be allowed to buy and sell players but clubs who have overcome major problems like having an owner jailed for embezzlement and Harry Redknapp getting his hands on the purse strings apparently disqualified.

  • How can this be when a club has pawned all its players off over many years . I believe we spent around £ 20 ,million last year but many of them were loanees and gone back ..others have left ..villa spent around £50 million to be on an embargo ..when are we going to get fair play rules that are fair to all …

  • More than 30 clubs are in this situation it’s just that those clubs have managed to keep it quiet until such time they can fix it but we have a sticky beak called Daniel who opened his big fat mouth that’s all this is. Now everybody knows we need to get this sorted so we will not be able to get the price we want for our players because they will see us as desperate I blame Daniel. The attention seeking t***.
