Anene Selection Availability Wait

23 August 2019

New Crewe Alexandra loan striker Chuma Anene could be available for selection for the game at Newport County AFC this weekend if he receives international clearance in time.

The 26-year-old from FC Midtjylland passed a medical this week & faces a race against time to receive international clearance in time for the trip to South Wales.

After just one training session with his new side & if clearance is granted, boss David Artell must now decide whether to include the Norwegian in his matchday squad.

Artell said: "He's had his medical & our staff have done a terrific job to get the deal over the line & get all the paperwork & whatnot ready for him to be part of our setup.

"He did an hour of training before the under 23 game the other day & he's joined in with full training for the first time today. We've done enough work on him & due dilligence. So far what we've seen, it's confirmed what we saw before we signed.

"He needs to get used to how we play, what we do & what to expect & the tactical side of it, but we're looking forward to doing that."
