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.
