Jenkins: Edgar May Be Forced To Return To Burnley

Jenkins: Edgar May Be Forced To Return To Burnley

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says on-loan defender David Edgar may have to return to Burnley following FIFA's involvement in the loan move.

The young defender return to the Liberty Stadium on transfer deadline day after spending time on loan with us last season, but it doesn't look like he'll kick a single ball for the Swans.

FIFA introduced a transfer matching system in October 2010 which aimed to speed up and clean up transfers, but it looks like all it's done is cause problems for Swansea City and Burnley.

Jenkins told the Official Site:

'We were told there was one decimal point out of place on Burnley's paperwork, a meaningless decimal point, and it has been extremely frustrating ever since trying to get Fifa to approve the loan deal,'

'It's a disappointing situation for the player and the two clubs. Everyone, apart from Fifa, is happy that the loan transfer was satisfactorily completed before the deadline.

'It used to be a fairly simple process between the two associations until Fifa came up with this new online system. It seems to have caused a lot of problems for a number of clubs.

'As a football club we feel it's an injustice that when we sign a player from a British club that plays in the same domestic league as us, then only ourselves and Cardiff City have to go through the process of getting international clearance.

'David Edgar is now in his third week with us and he is still unable to participate in the squad. As a club we feel we can't prolong this much longer and perhaps David may have to go back to Burnley where at least he can play football.''
