    It's ironic, given non-EU inward migration to the UK is the highest its been for 14 years. No problems replacing a French doctor with a South African doctor, but try replacing a French winger with a South African winger and you can forget it.

      Maybe that's so, but it has F all to do with Percy not getting a work permit.

      Basically this. The country can set its own rules on such things as work permits for non-Europeans. If he had a passport from a European country it would be a different matter. Belgium chooses to have a laxer threshold for work permits for non-Europeans with regard to professional footballers it seems.
      Is the correct answer.

      Maybe somebody could question the club on this at the next Fans Forum. Preferably ahead of a Benny asking about flasks. Did the club just fail to do their homework on immigration rules or is it part of a much wider recruitment strategy that includes the South American Scottish bloke. What gives?
      Not until we've had a view from GP on whether we will leave someone up at corners, or whether the Amex capacity can be increased, surely ?

      If he played for a French club on loan which also played in the Champions League, would Tau be allowed to travel to the UK to play a game?

      Boris is on the case, not to worry.

      If anyone was being cynical would they say, Brighton have funds available being a PL team so buy a non EU player, than aghast that they can't obtain a work permit loan out to a Belgium team, that the chairman of Brighton is involved with, thereby ensuring the Belgium side still comply with local FFP Regulations.

      This of course is pure speculation and is for the avoidance of doubt absolutely not the motivation for the signing of the player

      Potentially going to get harder after Brexit.
      I'm not in the Brexit camp but the one plus side might see more home based players getting their chance in the future?

      Or easier, who knows. We could have a points system on immigration, and favour anyone who is a "professional footballer".

      Or harder, where, as was being seriously debated a few years back, the FA introduce tighter regulations on the number of foreigners in each team or squad. At the time we were restricted by what we could do (I believe) due to the EU Freedom to Work Regulations.

      But post-Brexit it's presumably entirely up to us. Whether that's a good thing, looking at the cretins we currently have in Westminster, well, that's to be seen.
