Eduardo Awaiting Arsenal Clearence
Arsene Wenger has revealed that Arsenal's big summer signing, Eduardo Da Silva, is yet to recieve a work permit from The Home Office.
Arsenal's initial attempts to gain Eduardo a work permit were rejected.
However, Arsene Wenger remains confident the Croatian international will get international clearence when his appeal is heard on August 2nd.
'We've an appeal hearing on 2 August for his work permit,' said Wenger.
'He has 50% national games for Croatia, which is a great achievement. He's played every game in the last year, so it'll be extremely close.'
'There are some signings in England who didn't play even one game for smaller countries than Croatia,' added Wenger.
'I'm optimistic that we have a reasonable chance.'
