Ideye awaits work permit
West Bromwich Albion record signing, Brown Ideye, is still waiting for work permit to play in the English Premier League.
Ideye, who cost “The Baggies” 10 million pounds, was not picked for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, africanFootball.com reports.
But the former Dynamo Kiev striker is expected to get a work permit from the British Home Office as he is an established member of Super Eagles, winning the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations as well as featuring at last year’s FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil.
The rule says an applicant for the work permit must have played at least 75 per cent of his country’s games in the last two years to qualify for a work permit in England.
Meanwhile, Ideye has been handed the number 9 shirt by WBA, while compatriot Victor Anichebe will wear the number 10 shirt after he donned the number 16 jersey last season.
