Analytics FC’s Brexit report continues to be a resource for media organisations seeking to understand the complexity of the transfer market since the introduction of GBE rules.
This piece, from the Yorkshire Evening Post, quoted Analytics FC’s Brexitball expert Andy Watson on the Javi Gracia situation. Citing our report, Andy said, “What I referred to in the Brexitball document is that the documentation doesn’t seem to be as firmly applied in managerial cases… I think that the FA and Home Office take into account that a managerial life span is quite short, especially in the modern world. And therefore getting two years continuous is pretty tricky actually. So a spell like Gracia’s will probably be looked upon favourably.”
And this piece, from The Mirror and about Andrey Santos, cites our research when addressing the complexity of finding loan moves for young players hoping to develop within the English game having transferred from abroad.
