It looks like this Kristian Pedersen business could rumble on and on. Daniel Ivery is now questioning whether the Danish defender has been registered with the EFL.
A source is believed to have told the blogger that Xuandong Ren had contacted his bosses in Hong Kong to confirm the left back’s registration.
However, in his most recent blog post, Ivery said:
“I have to admit, I’m no longer certain that Pedersen has been registered.”
The doubts multiply if you consider Garry Monk’s reluctance to talk about Pedersen’s situation. All he would say is the club is working hard on getting the situation resolved:
“At this moment in time, the club are working very well with the EFL trying to make sure that solution gets done. I’ve been assured that’s going to happen so, like everyone else, I’m just waiting.”
Of course, the manager may not be allowed to talk a lot about the transfer embargo as there are ongoing discussions between the club and the EFL.
However, if Pedersen had indeed been registered then surely that is something that could have been confirmed. The lack of communication about these sort of issues is a major concern, leaving fans having to work out what is going on for themselves.
