Leicester Consider CAS Appeal For Silva

Leicester Consider CAS Appeal For Silva

Leicester City yesterday evening released a statement following Fifa's continued rejection to authorise the Adrien Silva transfer.

Despite backing from the Football Association and the providing of a forensic investigation which Leicester believed proved the paperwork was sent in full ahead of the deadline - meaning the 14 second delay in receiving all of it was purely at Fifa's end - as reported yesterday, Fifa rejected the appeal and Silva will now not be available for selection or to even train with his new colleagues until the opening of the January window.

A Leicester spokesperson told last night.

'We cannot hide our disappointment or that of the player at the short-term consequences of the decision. We maintain, and have made strong representations to FIFA`s Players` Status Committee, that all parties involved in Adrien`s transfer fulfilled their obligations, consistent with FIFA regulations and within the required timeframe. The Club is reserving its position in relation to whether it will decide to appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.'

The statement added.

'The Club and its staff will continue to work with Adrien to hopefully minimise the impact that missing a substantial period of the season may have on the player, while continuing to prepare the squad for the games ahead.'

Fifa are intent on genuinely improving their reputation aren't they.
