The stand-off between the club and the EFL about the transfer embargo continues without any sign of the issue being resolved soon.
Garry Monk has been given assurances that it will be sorted out but with just 13 days before the transfer window shuts, there has been no resolution regarding the club’s Financial Fair Play problems.
I’ve asked fans for their opinion, and only a small number think the club will come to some sort of understanding with the EFL before August 9th:
Looking from the outside, it’s very hard to tell what’s at the centre of the discussions between us and the Football League. A dispute over the numbers given for Trillion Trophy’s sponsorship of both the stadium and the training ground could be the major bone of contention.
Whatever the issues are, the main concern is that we are unable to strengthen our squad in the transfer market. No bids for players have been reported since our £2.75m offer for Bartosz Bialkowski a couple of weeks ago. That is a worry, and it seems that confidence that all of this can be resolved in the next couple of weeks is slipping away.
