Bolanos no more

So Immagrants and Asylum seekers get in all the time, but a young lad going by the name of Christian Bolanos has been rejected a work permit by the Home Office meaning that we have lost a prospect on a loan deal and would have to wait until this time next year for any chance of signing him. For the deal to fall through at this time is really frustrating as Bolanos made The Valley gasp at his attacking style of skilful play, when he was on trial, during the pre-season friendly against New Zeleand. This made many people want him to become a permanent fixture in SE7 and this looked likely when Dowie signed him on a years loan with an option to sign. Now we might miss out on him all together. We are only allowed to apply once a year, so who knows, in a years time if he continues to impress, the Man Utds and Chelseas of this world may be sniffing around.
In other news, Charlton have boosted their squad ahead of the August transfer deadline with the recruitment of yet another international in the shape of Senegal star Souleymane Diawara from Sochaux for €5.5 million.
