Blackpool closing in on a work permit for Jose Miguel Cubero

Published Add your comment

According to the Blackpool Gazette, the time may have finally come for Blackpool to add another player to the ranks and help them get their first points of the season.

The Costa Rican central midfielder, Jose Miguel Cubero, signed for Blackpool almost a month ago from Herediano in a £300,000 deal.

£300,000 deal

Cubero was listed as one of the four main targets that Jose Riga initially gave to his chairman Karl Oyston to go out and buy so he could build the spine of his team, yet Cubero was the only one who was signed from said list.

However, Cubero has been unable to play for the Seasiders since the deal went through due to work permit issues.

Work permit issues

According to the Gazette, Cubero has apparently not played enough international games for Costa Rica to claim a work permit automatically even though Cubero was an ever present member of the Costa Rican side who managed to defy all odds and reach the quarter-finals in Brazil before being knocked out by Holland on penalties.

Jose Miguel Cubero did claim however he would be able to play for the Seasiders if he had not picked up an injury prior to his arrival.

Enjoying life

Cubero seems like he is enjoying life in Blackpool regularly updating his Twitter page with the hashtag "#GoTangerines".

Since the news broke about Cubero getting closer to a deal Blackpool fans have had mixed emotions as they are happy they may get to see their new man finally pull on the tangerine shirt but some are pessimistic claiming that they have not heard anything off the club officially and fear they are never going to see the Costa Rican in action.

Just another predicament that Blackpool F.C unfortunately face.
