Work Permit Problems to Halt Manchester City Move for Alves

The expected transfer of Afonso Alves from Heerenveen to Manchester City looks to be off after the Premiership side discovered they will have problems obtaining a work permit for the Brazilian striker.

City were thought to have already agreed a deal with Heerenveen to sign Alves in the January transfer window, but these issues have put a halt to the deal, with City coach Tord Grip saying: "The deal is at a standstill".

Alves, 26, has been capped eight times by Brazil.
