Man City’s move for Mariga collapses over permit

Posted by Administrator on February 1, 2010

Mcdonald Mariga’s move from Parma to the Premier League is off.

The Kenyan international midfielder was a target of Manchester City, but work permit issues have prevented a deal from being completed.

His application was rejected as Kenya are ranked 98th in Fifa’s world rankings, outside the top 70 nations.

City can request a further appeal in a future transfer window but will not be able to register Mariga as a player in the current window.

Parma’s general manager Pietro Leonardi had told the Italian media on Monday: “We hope that this case will be resolved. We should have some update from England briefly.”

Mariga joined Parma on a permanent basis in the summer of 2008, after initially moving on loan from Helsingborgs, and the 20-year-old has made nine league appearances for the club this season.

He is under contract with the Serie A outfit until June 2012.

It’s the second time that The Home Office has dashed Mariga’s hopes after Portsmouth also failed to get a work permit in 2007.
