Jean Makoun II Work Permit Hold Up

Jean Makoun II Work Permit Hold Up

Mr K at www.birminghammail.net has a quick update on Jean Makoun who apparently has a slight complication with his work permit so can`t play in the pre-season games at the moment.

Villa jet off to the USA next week but Makoun is unlikely to be with them according to Mat Kendrick.

The rest of the details are in the article really, he has two years left on his deal, Lambert is looking to sit and talk with the player and despite initially being interested, Olympiakos wouldn`t be able to afford to buy the Cameroon international.

Not sure why that would affect him training, playing yes, but training and pre season games No work permit surely means similar to being on trial?

Jean could be good for us but I think he's had poor treatment from Villa. I hope this gets sorted out soon.

Mike, if he doesn't have a work permit, he won't be able to train or do anything. He gets paid a weekly salary, not a per game salary, so any activities for the Villa will be off limits.

No work permit equals trial though where players can train even though they can't physically be involved in competitive games mate. Least that's how I always thought it worked, because we've had players over for a trial without work permits in the past.

Mike, it's a valid point, but I guess it must be because he already has a contract with us.

He needs to be given a chance. At least until January. As do all the players at the club. If he's no good and MON bought a deadball then sell him during January.

Mike, Lee is right. Work permts relate to your employment status not your football eligibility (thats governed by player registration). Any form of activity with the Villa would be deemed employment due to his contract and he doesn't currently have permission to work in this country. Trials are different because the player in question is either unpaid or is here on business employed by their parent club covered by a temporary visa.

The thing is thoough Mike, when we have a player on trial we are not payiong them a wage, ergo they are not working for us. JIIM has a contract and wage from us and as such, when his work permitt is revoked or at least is not in force, he can not carry out any of his normal duties that he is paid for, that being training. I'm pretty sure no one minds him kicking a ball around in teh park but training with teh squad is his job.
