Chancel Mbemba is waiting to sign for Newcastle, and specifically he is waiting for his visa to be approved and before that can happen the FA must give Newcastle a Governing Body Endorsement.
That will not happen until Thursday when the FA will convene a panel to discuss it.
This is what happened yesterday when Mbemba was at the Anderlecht game in Brussels and was urged onto the field by the players to say goodbye to the home fans.
Anderlecht had just beaten Waasland-Beveren 3-2.
The video is doing the rounds on the Internet and it shows how well liked the player is.
