Hi folks, this information is courtesy of Reuters and very enlightening it is to. Yes finally UEFA have relaxed their rule on the movement of player to club during a Champions League or Europa League campaign.
The executive comity consisting of one Gianni Infantino have now found to allow a player to move to another club at the ceasement of the preliminary round if his former employers have been eliminated before the beginning of the competition proper. So whether it be that a player either signs during the summer transfer window or the January opening it is now permitted for him to partake in his new employers European campaign.
This new rule which started at the commencement of this season is great news for all clubs who either make it through the early stages of the campaign should they wish to strengthen their squad with top quality experienced players yet operate on a tighter budget or those who are fortunate enough to enter the competition proper later on in the year but may want to buy an up and coming prospect.
However as they say there is often a dark cloud attached to any silver lining dependent of course on your point of view,this being then that of the three new players a club may add in January only one might be permitted to enter the fray of the European adventure who has previously played in the competition regardless of whether their clubs where knocked out in the preliminary rounds.
This of course gives us a renewed hope regarding Suarez and Fabiano,there is also the creative midfielder Turan. Should we progress next Wednesday and their current clubs fail to do so.
