Striker Of Emergency Benjani Still To Leave City?

Striker Of Emergency Benjani Still To Leave City?



Benjani and his agent have now seen season long loan deals fall through with Hull and West Ham over personal terms but the forward could still drop down a division or two...

The likeable striker has found himself in another transfer limbo not dissimilar to the farce that surrounded his move from Portsmouth to City in January 2008. He's clearly off the agenda in Mark Hughes' thinking and nobody else in the Premier League can take him on now the summer transfer window has slammed shut.

However, the 31 year old could still leave The Blues under the Football League's 'emergency loan' system should he be able to agree terms with a lower league club.

We already know that Svennis, Notts County's new main man is a big admirer.

As the Vital MC vaults understand it, under the rules, Football League clubs can sign players on an emergency loan for a maximum of 93 days. An emergency loan cannot happen until 7 days after each transfer window has closed, in this case up until 26th November. There is no limit on how many players can be brought to a club, but only five loanees can be named on any team sheet.

Sparky's lean looking revitalised squad could be set to be all that leaner should the Zimbabwean be offloaded to make him the 10th City player currently out on loan.

You know I saw the look on Svens' face when they asked him about the benjani transfer to City, It was clear that he did not have a clue and think this was forced on him. Benjani just did not fit into the style of play that City wanted at that time, but at least he scored at the swamp in a great win there. If indeed Svennis does want him at County then that would be a real coupp for them and he will be brilliant.

Deal collapses over personal terms eh? Yet another player content to sit on his arse and draw his wages for doing nothing when he could move elsewhere and be playing. Not something tha t endears Benjani to me or most other fans I'm afraid.

I've read this morning that West Ham wanted to sign Benjani on loan on transfer deadline day but couldn't track down his agent - That really is no way to run a business is it Mr MacKay or don't you get your 10% for loan moves?!

The impression I get is that Benjani isn't bothered whether he's playing or not as long as he's gettin payed. Could be another Danny Mills, on the Berti for the next two years at full pay.
