ACCRINGTON Stanley have been hit with a transfer embargo, which blocks the club from registering any new players with the Football League, but the club insist it is not a problem.

The embargo was placed on the club by the Football League, after a recent rule change meant that any clubs who were to file their yearly accounts later than the deadline stated, would be embargoed.

And it is due to be a few weeks yet before the club do get their accounts in, but Chief Executive Rob Heys believes that it won’t hamper the club’s transfer targets.

‘We can sign players but we can`t register them,” Heys told the Lancashire Telegraph.

“We`ve got six weeks until the start of the season, though, so there`s not a problem at the moment. It`s to do with the 2009 accounts but we hope to get that done in the next couple of weeks.”

John Coleman has already completed three signing in Alex Cisak, Craig Lindfield and Michael Hall, all of who will be registered once the embargo is lifted.
