Hopes that our transfer embargo could be lifted in the not to distant future have been raised by some recent comments – although as it stands we do still have this in place…

Despite this fact it was today ‘claimed’ in The Sunday People that a deal ‘has been agreed’ for Egyptian striker Emad Metab.

This deal is ‘said’ to have been ‘set up’ by SAF, who is also ‘said’ to still be working on a deal for Amr Zaki as well – although he made it clear he did not want to sign for us back along, right…

‘Apparently’ the 26-year-old, Metab that is, who plays for Al-Ahly is someone that Avram Grant ‘admires’ and would like to sign for £1.2m when the transfer embargo is lifted, which Grant has ‘allegedly’ been told will be the case before the end of the month – although to be fair we too have also been told this is something ‘we hope’ will be the case.

The fact remains that until this embargo is lifted talk of players signing is nothing more than talk, although Grant has himself said that deals are being lined up – so I am sure that, funds permitting and this embargo being lifted, he will soon move for these players that you would imagine would be wrapped up quickly…

As always all we can do is wait and see.
