We promised yesterday that we would keep you up to date and Club secretary John Alexander reported this afternoon: "FIFA have confirmed through the English FA that a detailed application has been received from Mali and Fredi Kanoute. They plan to look at it tomorrow and make their decision then."
As soon as we have any definitive news then will let fans know through the club's official channels.
