Cardiff Manager Neil Warnock Not Happy With This Particular Premier League Transfer Rule


Cardiff manager Neil Warnock has criticised “scandalous” Premier League loan rules ahead of the January transfer window.


Current rules mean that clubs can only have a maximum of two players on loan from other Premier League teams, and only one from any given Premier League club.

Warnock has Bournemouth’s Harry Arter in his squad at present, meaning he could make only one other Premier League loan signing next month.

“Heaven knows why we can only have two Premier League loans in,” Warnock said, ahead of the Boxing Day clash against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Warnock added: “When you are talking about English players needing experience – our younger players for the English team – and we can’t loan more than one more player.

“I’ve got Harry Arter, so I can’t take a young English striker or a young English midfield player, if I’ve got another one (on loan).

“It’s scandalous, really. You can bring 10 from abroad, so who are we trying to help?

“Who has invented these rules? It’s a disgrace, really, when I could be giving another good young English lad an opportunity of playing in the Premier League.”
