Yet another twist with the transfer embargo story. The man who broke the news a couple of weeks ago, Daniel Ivery, has now revealed that Kristian Pedersen has been registered with the EFL, although the embargo itself hasn’t been lifted.

It seems like the Danish left-back was given some sort of special dispensation so he can now play for the club next season:

Fans on Twitter were left scratching their heads about the whole situation:


The decision to let left-back Dominic Bernard leave for Aldershot on loan seems to suggest that the club are now not concerned about being left short of left-backs if the embargo isn’t lifted.

While it’s great to hear that Pedersen now appears to be eligible to play for us, there looks to be still a lot of work to do before we can actually sign players again.

With just 16 days to the close of the transfer window, let’s hope things can be quickly resolved now.

  • We have a young talented left back in Steve Seddon and an old talented left back in Jonathan Grounds still on the books.

  • It can only happen to Blues. Less than two weeks to go before the start of the season I’m starting to worry, we must get of to a strong start and hopefully be in a good position if this embargo is lifted for the January window. I’m sure Gary will trust in youth as we have some very good youngsters coming through. KRO

  • I suspect that the figures theyve submitted in respect of renaming the training ground have been questioned…but why is it always Blues?

  • Pedersen is not the issue.Major issue is the goalkeeper.To start with Trueman would not make any sense at all.Good a prospect as he may be ,we need a top class keeper in from day one. Stockdale and Kusczak for whatever reasons for their exclusions,will be missed if no one else is brought in before the Norwich game. My faith in Monk is total and for this reason my belief is that Joe Hart will arrive on a season loan. Wishful thinking possibly but Hart not only ticks the boxes for us but does the same for Joe,who must be seeking a welcoming home after two ‘wilderness seasons’.

  • I’m now beginning to feel quite frustrated for Garry, the board must know what needs to be done to lift this embargo, so please, please Mr Ren do something about this now! Now it looks likely we’ll miss out on Marriott and Waghorn, Pedersen won’t be registered in time and there still doesn’t appear to any movement on the goalkeeping dilemma. What happens next? Garry gets irritated with the lack of commitment and leaves, hello Coventry next season!

    • I think you are overthinking things it won’t come to that. We still have stock Dale we haven’t sold him so if we have to use him we will we still have grounds we haven’t sold him so the same as above we will use him if we have to. A form last season under monk was a solid mid table finish it’s only the form before he turned up that left us where we were. There are at least six clubs in a worse position than us. Chill man.
