Registration issues with Jordan Green – after a previous loan spell with Newport – meant the Bournemouth winger was forced to sit out the weekend defeat against Carlisle.

It was confirmed ahead of that 2-1 defeat on Saturday that despite the fact the loan was signed off and Green had training with the club all week he had to be left out of the Leyton Orient squad while these issues were resolved.

Green was a deadline day arrival at Brisbane Road but that previous loan spell with Newport meant the 21 year old had to be registered with both the Football League and the Football Association of Wales.

A statement on the Official Website read.

‘Despite the winger spending the latter part of this week training with Orient having received confirmation from both the Football League and the Football Association, the club are unable to involve Jordan this afternoon due to the failure to request his return papers from the Welsh FA following the conclusion of the original loan. The Cherries have subsequently appealed to FIFA in order for the loan to still go through.’

This came at the end of the week when we saw Ulrich Nnomo’s loan move to Paris FC cancelled as well.

Nnomo was signed from Chateauroux last summer but was set to see out his Orient contract back in France. However, as the 20 year old had represented his former club in a reserve fixture it would have breached the two club rule.

A player can only represent two clubs in one season under FIFA Players’ Transfer rules. With that reserve outing for his former club counting as an ‘official’ game by the French Football Federation his seven games for Orient this season meant he couldn’t join Paris FC.

He returned to Brisbane Road and will now hope to force his way into Danny Webb’s first team plans having been deemed surplus to requirements.
