Benjani’s transfer to Man City ‘could’ go through after all with the premier league apparently revealing that they will ‘review’ the paperwork of the proposed switch.

Man City made an ‘official announcement’ in the early hours that the deal had not been completed, but now sky sports – and others – are reporting that the premier league are ‘examining the paperwork’.

I do not know what will happen fellas, but sky sports were saying late yesterday evening that the premier league had already been stressing that ‘no leeway would be given and midnight was the cut off point with – no exceptions’.

It was thought that both clubs had the paperwork in before the midnight deadline to complete the deals – as we know Defoe has signed, and I assume this cannot be changed? – but now everything seems to be up in the air again as far as Benjani is concerned, and basically this is becoming a bit of a farce…

Maybe this is my heart speaking – as I do not want Benjani to go, and thought we would now keep him – but it would seem that rules are just being made as they go along if this deal can go through after all, as what would be the point of a ‘deadline’ if it is not met? It would make a mockery of the transfer window, would it not…
