Alassana Jatta’s visa application has been approved and he is expected to travel to Nottingham this week.
The 25-year-old Gambian national is joining us from Danish Superliga side Viborg FF, a deal which was completed on transfer deadline day subject to international clearance and visa approval.
Since then, we have engaged a specialist immigration lawyer and taken the necessary steps to fast-track his visa application and we have now received confirmation that he will be eligible to play in the UK.
Jatta, who has continued to train at Viborg since agreeing to the move, must now wait for the visa office to issue the necessary documentation. This is expected to happen in the early part of this week, which will then allow him to travel to the UK.
We look forward to welcoming Alassana to Meadow Lane in the near future. He will wear squad number 29.
