Blues dealt major transfer blow in signing Swedish striker


It’s more bad news for Monk and his hunt for another striker. A move for Swedish striker Joel Mumbongo has been blocked by the EFL.

According to reports, a deal could not be negotiated because of ongoing financial implications, despite the 19-year-old training at Wast Hills this week.

Blues have only been permitted to make five additions that fall under ‘certain conditions’ the EFL imposed last month – That includes wage caps on free transfers and loans.

Those regulations have resulted in Monk missing out on getting his man. However, a move for Gary Gardner is in the pipeline, with reports suggesting he completed a medical at Wast Hills today.

What are your thoughts, should Monk look in the loan market for a striker before the window shuts on August 31?
