Just wondering what's the maximum age you need to get player in for him to qualify as home-grown at club? I just bought a Vaclav Kadlec, he's 18, but it doesn't show in the Home-grown Due Date column. Anyone knows why is this?

I believe to qualify as home grown the player has to have spent 3 years in the country before their 21st birthday.

To qualify for homegrown status the player must have trained for at least three years before his 21st birthday on a nacional club.
So he might apply, but you'll still have to wait three years.

Yea, I thought so too, but I thougth there would at least be a future date in the HG Due Date column. Currently there's nothing.

In Italy and Spain it's 3 years before 21, I think it's more for England, can someone who plays EPL sides confirm?

if its 3 years before, then it just about qualifies right since he's 18. Or do they go all the way to birthdays. Coz he turned 18 in May, I got him in August.

Kadlec can't be homegrown for any other club, becouse hes to old, hes eighteen
a player needs to be in a club for three years before his 21'st birthday to get the homegrown status
so kadlec can't be a homegrown player for your club becouse hes already eighteen when you start a new game

Hope this has been fixed in the latest patch, I was planning on buying alot of 16-17 year olds straight away in my new game to get enough good players as "home grown" for my squad in 4-5 years time......I wonder if using Real time editor and changing a players 2nd nationality would get round this annoying problem?
