Alex Teixeira contract expired but cannot approach?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Sorry did a search but couldn't find if it's been asked before.

So Alex Teixeira is still at his Chinese club, but his contract has now gone past it's expiry date - I've been watching it as I'm keen to try and sign him.  However there is no otpion 'approach to sign' (and hasn't been for 6 months before the end date).

So his profile says he is still at the club, states his wages but the contract date is missing.


Must be a bug?

Maybe his contract expires outside a transfer window? Had this same issue with Calleri in FM 16 IIRC. His contract expired in October or something.

If you're an English club, fairly certain you can't approach these players until there's a month left.

Why do people keep saying it could be brexit? If a player at a top clubs contract runs out, I'm 99.9% sure they he will leave and not stay on a month to month contract. There doesn't seem to be any official response from SI. And no one really knows why it's happening.

Because it's EU legislation therefore UK clubs can't take advantage of it once they leave the EU (dependent on how hard the Brexit was). China will also presumably have their own rules regarding contracts and I'd imagine this is also having an affect

Just to clarify:

 

- This is AFTER the expiration date, i.e now there is NO date showing.

 - Super League and League One transfer window opened on 1 January 2016 and closed on 26 February 2016.  - I'm in Jan so their Window is open.  

- I'm don't recall any Brexit happening yet in this save, I've certainly not had any issue signing players from abroad.

 

IMO this is a bug.

Can the others clarify if when you've seen this where you were manager, and where those players were playing?  I'm playing as Leeds in the Premier league.

I'd advise you to post a bug report here and let SI check it out. Remember to read the instructions first, so you know what to do,

IMO not a bug. I don't think the Bosman ruling applies to China. 

The bosman rule does not apply to players based in China. Players based in China who are coming to the expiry of their contract cannot be 'Approached To Sign'. Once a player at a Chinese club has seen their contract expire and the players club wish to keep the player then a transfer offer will need to be made in order to sign the player. 

Cheers,

Ben

I'm managing in Germany and trying to sign players From England. So where's the answer for that then?

Are those players actually past their contract expiry date?

In England if you're trying to sign players based in England on a Bosman you have to wait until the final month of their contract.

As a German team, you can only sign players from England on a Bosman if England is still part of the EU. If they have left the EU, the players are not available on Bosman's.
