Good finish, he looks a player. Get his work permit sorted now. 

It's not down to us, it'd have been done already if it was

UK definitely should reconsider those stupid work permit rules when it comes to football players. All these rules make no sense and only bring frustration. Either remove the work permits or employ a slot system that is used in most countries in Europe.

Don’t worry, Brexit will sort all that out...

How will that help? Expectations are even worse, because even EU nations must be treated as foreign.

Taking back control mate, we can do what we want!

If they reconsider them for footballers they obviously need to consider them for everyone else as well. It would be ridiculous to allow footballers to have work permits easier than other professions.

Prioritisation of who gets permits dependent on a skill set already exists.

Yeah, that must be considered for all professional athletes and the corresponding association may imply rules over how many foreign athletes, if any, can be registered. It is like that in other countries and seems fair.

You misunderstood. I meant for all workers. Footballers, from the perspective of law are employees like plumbers or software engineers. Those association rules have nothing to do with work permits and they do not stop clubs from signing any number of foreigners, only limit the number that can play at the same time.

No, it's not the same for all workers. Apparently footballers are not considered as workers, because in order to get work permit, the foreign players are classified with points on certain criteria for example: games played for national team, rank of nation within football world, value of the transfer etc. It's weirdly discriminative towards players and clubs as well, because the richest clubs can get the best Brazilians with no problem whatsoever, and others are restricted to EU nationals only. Yet players with growing reputation like Henry Onyekuru, who probably has something to offer to the PL can't get WP, but if Manchester City pays us 60m for him, he'll get that WP instantly, because he'll collect the points required through the huge transfer fee. It's just ridiculous and makes little sense. I'm not sure how's the thing with normal workers, but I know people who are not EU citizens and moved to UK. Let me tell you, they are not driving a Ferrari as far as I know.
