I don't think it is a straightforward process getting a work permit, and maybe he simply isn't a big enough improvement on the players we already have to justify paying what is a large fee for a young player. You have to question Tosic future as well, apparently he might have to reapply for a...

Looks like they've done the same with Poyet, could be costly for them. It will be interesting to see if Ramos can turn them around, Sevilla beat Valencia 3-0 without him, his achivements have been good with Sevilla but with the talent they have I wouldn't class them as overachievers.

I doubt we will see them in the first team for a while, and they are shorter than Evra and I can't see them making it in the premiership as fullbacks. Fabio might make it as a winger but it's hard to say.
