um, ive found it easier to sign foriegn players on the new patch, alot easier, i signed that andres cardenas boy at 16!! if you get the option to appeal make sure you do it because they usualy accept it then
I think any players based in South America are a no go when it comes to work permits. I got Alexis Sanchez to agree a contract with Bristol City, but the work permit didn't go through so I have to try again.
Yeah, WP's are a real bummer, they can really get in the way of getting those brazillian wonderkids. Thing is, no matter how many times you offer the player a new ontract, the permit will be turned down. :|
Pot luck really, when you sign a non EU player, guarentee you'll ALWAYS have to appeal for WP and that's really just luck... unless they have so many caps for their country, I think it's between 20-30, it's basically English football rules so that'll be on FM :]
