The verdict's in! (updated)

Excuse my slight tardiness on this. I was waiting to speak to a couple of folks who had meetings before I said anything here. But yes, Alejandro Bedoya has been rubber-stamped for a UK work permit and his Rangers free move in January.

However... a few days ago, I was told that this verdict would clink into motion one last Rangers try to grab Bedoya on an August transfer. After speaking to these people, I can confirm that this attempt is being formulated now. NSC regulars will recall that Örebro had been demanding about $1 million to let him go less than four months early.

Will it happen? I don't have any real clues to that, but my gut feeling/guess is that Örebro may relent on their asking price enough to get this done. They aren't exactly in position to earn no money on his already imminent departure.

UPDATE: Oops. I kinda forgot to link this up here for about, ohhh, several hours. Sorry.

Wish I could help there, but it's not really my turf.
