Duo granted work permit

Recent signings Valeri Bojinov and Vedran Corluka have this
afternoon been granted work permits in order to be registered for the
Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, together with other club representatives,
attended the successful hearing earlier today so that the Bulgarian striker and
Croatian defender can now apply for international clearance.
Sven said: "We
are talking about two extremely good footballers of enormous quality, and I’m
delighted that the permits have been granted."
Also, Brazilian midfielder
Elano already has his work permit and is hopeful of receiving international
clearance in time to be available for the season-opener at Upton Park.

It is unclear whether either Bojinov or Corluka will be ready in time though for the West Ham game, and it also looks unlikely that either Mark Bresciano (despite him training with us) or a new 'keeper will arrive before the season opener.
