14 seconds can be an eternity. At slightest it is for Leicester City.
The Transfer Window this summer non-stop on Jul 1st and sealed during 11pm on Aug 31st. That gave a former Premier League champions 5,353,200 seconds to buy and register any actor they wanted.
It looks like they will not be means to play new signing Adrien Silva until January, since they missed a deadline to register a Portugal general by 14 seconds.
The former Sporting Lisbon midfielder was one of a after signings on Deadline Day. Silva was approaching to be a approach deputy for Danny Drinkwater. The England general assimilated Chelsea hours earlier.

According to The Times, even yet Silva’s registration did not go through, Sporting Lisbon’s boss Bruno de Carvalho says a send was completed.
I would like people to realize that FIFA has not ruled opposite a transfer, yet opposite registration. The send is done, what is during interest is a registration and we wish we can enrol. Adrien was exemplary. Leicester needs a actor a lot and we wish they find a solution.
While FIFA are austere that a registration was not finished in a allotted time, they still might concede a understanding to go by in a entrance days. Their stream position yet is that Leicester will have to wait to register a Euro 2016 winner.
If that’s a case, it’s a large fumble from a 2016 champions. They will have a world-class midfielder on their training field, yet will have to wait until Jan to register a player.
Having already played 3 games this season, Leicester will play another 18 in a Premier League before Silva will be means to line out for a side.
While it’s easy to feel contemptible for both a actor and a club, they did have dual months to finish a deal.
