Adams fears long-term block
Leicester City boss Micky Adams fears the transfer embargo will hang over his side until the end of the season.

A block on permanent transfer arrivals at the Walkers Stadium was imposed as standard Football League practice when the club went into administration last year.

The New Fox Plc consortium, fronted by Gary Lineker has taken over the club.

There is money available to me but I'm not going to be able to spend it because of the embargo

Micky Adams

But League officials have insisted a detailed breakdown of New Fox Plc's business plan be submitted before the transfer restriction can be lifted.

Adams said: "The embargo is not going to be lifted until the end of the season and that's a definite.

"There is money available to me to strengthen the squad, but I'm not going to be able to spend it because of the Football League embargo.

"Instead, the money will go on wages and towards financing possible loan deals."
