Reports this evening suggest that Arsenal’s first signing of the January transfer window, Mohamed Elneny from FC Basel, is done and dusted, but that the Gunners are awaiting a work permit before the deal can be announced.
The 23 year old has apparently passed a medical, but recent changes to the work permit system mean his move has become more complicated.
If a player had played more than 50% of his country’s internationals he was eligible, but this applied to the top 70 nations. It was recently changed to include only the top 50, which leaves the midfielder out of the loop.
But basically Phil Collins and John Terry are massive twats, so it should all be announced soon.
Happy new year!
