The transfer of out-of-favour national striker Gary Glasgow from Chinese club Gaungzhou FC to local pro-club National Quarries North East Stars seems set for a positive ending.
Contacted last week, Stars owner Darryl Mahabir said that he received information from the T&T Football Federation, which indicated that Glasgow, who also enjoyed spells in the MLS and US Soccer A League, would be given a temporary transfer.
Glasgow was originally targeted by Stars as one of their possible new signings during the PFL transfer window, which closed on September 14.
His move, however, was held up after Stars were unable to get his International Transfer Clearance in time from the Chinese club.
“It seems that we will have to wait until Monday to get his official release because the Chinese officials have requested that the T&T Football Federation re-submit its request for his transfer on behalf of our club,” said Mahabir.
Mahabir was, however, hopeful that the transfer would be completed by noon on Monday so that Glasgow, who has been training with Stars for the last couple of weeks, would be able to make his debut for the club in the PFL match against CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh, at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo, from 6 pm yesterday.
The Stars fielded Walter Moore in their squad for the penalty shoot-out win over WASA Clean & White in the Toyota Classic last Friday, after he got his international transfer clearance. However, Jaffar Munroe, a striker from Montserrat, did not get his and was forced to return to Montserrat.
