Chancel Mbemba – Visa delay due to FA

Newcastle have just released the following communication about the status of the transfer of Mbemba from Newcastle to Anderlecht:

Chancel Mbemba Deal Moves Closer

Following an agreement between Newcastle United and Anderlecht for the transfer of Chancel Mbemba, the player has been in Newcastle and has agreed personal terms with the Club and undergone his medical.

The documentation in relation to the Club’s application for a Governing Body Endorsement (GBE), required in order for Mbemba to obtain a visa, was submitted to the FA on Wednesday morning (22nd July).

Unfortunately, the FA are unable to consider the Club’s application until Thursday of next week (30th July).

The FA advised the Club they were not able to convene a Panel any sooner.

The Club will provide an update for supporters at the earliest opportunity following the conclusion of the Panel hearing.

The tone of that communication suggests the club are not at all happy with the FA seeming to drag their feet on this.

It looks like everything is agreed for the deal – the transfer fee to Anderlecht, the compensation package for Mbemba, and it seems he must have passed his medical.

Comments welcome.

    Well someone at NUFC has a little attitude towards the FA don’t they haha

    Must be pretty confident they can push the visa through otherwise they surely wouldn’t of gotten this far

    What did Will Carling call the English Rugby Union Committee ? – – – – – 57 old farts !!!
    I think we have the same problem with the FA
    Outmoded and not fit for purpose.

    I bet they would convene a panel sooner if he was joining Man Utd or Chelsea.

    Bah you’re all just moaners. There’s positive things being done by the FA and they’ve learned their lessons from the past. We should all move on and stop listening to these ‘neggers’ whingeing constantly about our Football Association, after all, it’s on a sound financial footing now….

    Re the visa issue, could it be the same for Mitrovic and why he is not named in the game today?

    It will give them both time to getting their personal affairs sorted before coming over.

    Typical of the FA, it’s the transfer window for gods sake . They should be available all the time have they not heard of conference calls. Anyway it should only take one person to look at the information!.

    I read tgat he didn’t qualify for a working visa so NUFC have to go through to a further look into the lad before it can be granted that’s why it needs a full panel to my understanding

    I understand the FA’s plight, I mean have you ever tried convening a panel in less than a week? it’s a nightmare I can tell you. Panel convening is an art more than a science. There’s the panel, first of all, you have to get one of those. Then there’s the convening you have to be a qualified convener or get a specialist in, can’t just convene it yourself willy-nilly so to speak. And then the panel has to be fit for being convened! Get it wrong and there’s all sorts of problems. Glad we’ve got the FA to do this.

    Whenever I think about how the FA conducts business I think
    “What does my tattoo say?”
    “Dude! – what does my tattoo say?”
    “Sweet! What does my tattoo say?”……

    jib – the blog pest and poster of duff/irrelevant information . Just shut it you tart.
    Eagerly awaiting your next gaffe – which reveals your lack of footy knowledge.

    Hahahah.
    Good laugh from the Ian Toon posts -he’s so confused he cannot even get his fraudulent response correct. What a knacker.
    The original pushy pardew posts must be the blog classic of all time -what a knacker.

    Why doesn’t Ashley flex his financial muscles in situations like this when it comes to Newcastle? He does in his other business interests. Money talks, Ashley has money – why is he mute? All the other rich clubs splash out the filthy lucre to curry favour, I don’t know why we don’t. God knows Ashley has no morals or scruples to stand in his way.

    Btw magscar I understand what you mean about rehashing and aggravating old scores but I believe that by pointing out the wrong protagonists you’re doing an injustice to a degree. it’s actually Ian reviving his old tricks and personae that has resulted in highlighting the mischief he gets up to. Public information service you could say.

    16′ – Good chance for Sheffield United’s Che Adams but Daryl Janmaat reads his run superbly to block the shot. #NUFC
