BBC on Mariga's permit problem

The BBC's football reporter Chris Bevan tells us about McDonald Mariga's failed work permit application via Twitter:
Man City move for McDonald Mariga has fallen through. They could not get a work permit for the 22-year-old Kenyan international. (link)

Man City appealed over Mariga work permit at hearing at Wembley this morning. Attended by reps from club, FA, Prem Lge, PFA & ex-pros (link)

i heard we expected an appeal. with close links with a kenya as a commonwealth nation, it should get through

doesn't the second story say that the appeal was turned down?

I am a bit surprised TBH. 8m quid, great stats from his time at Parma, not many 6'2 midfielders around.

maybe someone on the appeal board had an axe to grind!
