Not how it works. If transfers are agreed, there is a grace period for paperwork and registrations.

So that's 3 who say there's a grace period vs 2 who says it's closed. 

@djchapsticks - any idea how long this grace period lasts? An hour?

HIBS TRYING FOR LATE MCGRATH DEAL

Hibernian are trying to clinch a late deal for St. Mirren forward Jamie McGrath.

McGrath is currently in Portugal with Republic of Ireland.

The deal will involve cash plus Drey Wright and Scott Allan going the other way.

Wouldn't surprise me at all. Oooh money and 2 players we don't have to make any effort for. Done deal I'd say.😠

You can't sign another player from another club after deadline BUT if initial paperwork has been sorted prior then there is an hour's grace to get it sorted.

Hibs deal for McGrath, fee still surely needs to be up around the £300k at least. If we knocked back that amount before, Allan & Wright can’t be worth that much money if Hibs are wanting shot.
 

£300k+ and those two would do me.

But couldn't clubs cheat and quickly draft paperwork to make it APPEAR as though it has been done earlier? If so, that effectively makes the real deadline 1 am.

No not really given the time frame/panic interest as it would have been done electronically and that gives a time footprint which can't be bodged. It's just the initial paperwork(so to speak) that has to be submitted priori to window closing.

I'm pretty sure it's either emailed or faxed and that first part has to be in before midnight.

It's easy, get Dundee to arrange the paperwork.😊

What is? Keeping McGrath? As someone wrote on the BBC (I think it was) - keeping him would be the best transfer news they could ask for.

I read that too on BBC. To be fair we could have just said NO to Hibs and Aberdeen. But no further signings off our own bat speaks volumes. Fake saints brought in another defender on loan from Brighton 1 hour after Kerr deal was finalised to Wigan. Now we struggle on to January. ...............

Honest to f**k looks like we were happy to sit back and take Hibs cast offs whether we wanted them or even if they wanted to be here which I doubt very much.
