Hi, I'm new here and to football manager. I only bought FM17 when it was heavily discounted to learn before 18 comes out. I'm sure my problem must've been discussed before but I can not find it anywhere. So I'm with Barnet, I signed a free agent at the start of my second season who is Spanish but had played at 1 english club before. I signed him on a 2 year deal. I played out that season and he created the second most assists for my team. I went into my third season and it come up listing all the players whose contracts run out in 12 months so I proceeded to offer them new deals. He accepted a new deal with an increase of what he was on before. But I assume brexit must've gone through at the same time. So the day after he signed a new contract it come up saying his work permit was rejected even though he was at the club before brexit went through, due to the amount of games played? (Likewise, a side problem is that I have an affiliation with Charlton, went to loan a CB from them who was Dutch and it said his work permit was rejected even though he's already at Charlton with no WP flag next to his name?) So now I have a player on what I would call a high wage for my team, on a long term contract (he's only 22 or 23 so at the time thought this was a good idea), who I could sell for a fair amount, for my team, and it would not be cost effective to mutually end the contract. But when I offer to clubs there is no interest, so I assume it isn't offering him to the spanish clubs? Is there a way to do this? Thanks for your help guys.
Can anyone tell me how 'normal' Brexit works in terms of this 'special - no work permit require - status' for EU players that are already playing in the UK? Are the considered special forever, or only for the duration of their current contract (at time of Brexit announcement) / until their next transfer to another club? Brexit is kicking in at the end of my current season and I can't work out if it's worth looking at EU players (without loads of recent caps) who are at other UK clubs or not? Or if I will even be able to sign my current EU players to new contracts? Any advice appreciated!
