Right I have used the search to find related questions on this and have so far not been able to find an answer.
Here's my situation
Im Charlton in my 2nd season and I was top of the league going into the January transfer window with no need of signing any new players.
But that changed on the 31st of January because my team did not win a single game in that month and has been playing poorly and to add to that 3 of my main starting defence are now injured.
I did a search for a new CB, and found a player who was better than expected.
He is an uncapped player from Brazil so I thought ok no chance of him playing but I checked to see if he had a 2nd nationality which he didnt.
What I did notice was that he was considering taking citizenship of Poland. He played for a Polish club before moving back to Brazil.
So I put in an offer (5mil), got accepted, he also agreed terms.
A work permit was not granted and no chance of appeal because it was only a couple of hours before the end of the transfer window.
I was given the option of signing him to loan out as I have a feeder club in Belgium.
I accepted thinking he'll agree to become Polish and thus be able to play for me.
When the deal went through my fans were overjoyed with his signing.
He however did not take the Polish nationality upon signing.
Now Here's My Questions
When will he take the 2nd nationality to allow him to play for me?
Is there anything I can do to encourage him to take it?
Would he of taken it straight away to be able to sign for me IF I did not have the Belgium Feeder club?
Do I wait hoping he'll take it because he is currently unable to play?
Do I send him to Belgium on loan until the end of the season hoping that will encourage him to take it?
Do I sell him on and cut my losses on him?
P.S If someone from SI could give us all a clear up on this issue it would be most helpful to all.
