Leicester have "reluctantly accepted" FIFA's refusal to give £22million signing Adrien Silva international clearance after his transfer deadline day and must now wait until January to register the player.
FIFA claimed Leicester missed the Transfer Matching System registration deadline by 14 second when they signed Silva from Sporting Lisbon on deadline day. The Foxes appealed the decision, which was rejected, and had been looking to lodge an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to pave the way for Silva's to be eligible to play before January. But FIFA revealed they would not support the expedited appeal process and the club have decided to accept the ruling. With the drawn out saga now over, Silva will train with Leicester and build his fitness for the start of January. The 28-year-old, who was signed to replace Danny Drinkwater, should challenge for a place in the starting XI once eligible to play. A club statement read: "We intend to register Adrien at the earliest opportunity. In the meantime, he will remain under our care, training with the squad under the supervision of our coaching, medical and sport science staff." Tue, Oct 24, 2017 12:57:00 PM
