  1. Jeorge, Thanks for the good work you have been doing but I just want to ask you a simple question. Will our new youth signings be available for this weekend academy fixtures or not

    1. The new foreign signings usually have to wait a while for their transfers to be approved by FIFA, but I’m not sure if that’s the case this year.

      1. If they have to wait for FIFA approval, then that will be big dissappointement because FIFA always take long time to approve this youth signings

  2. Thanks for this excellent update, Jeorge.

    I notice that only some of the Young Pros have a squad number;

    35. Zelalem
    36. Bielik
    38. Crowley
    45. Iwobi
    54. Reine-Adelaide
    56. Toral
    59. Willock

    Is there any rationale to this? Or the squad numbers for the others will be released soon?
