Amid much uninformed speculation, the Club would like to clarify the current situation with regards the signing of Souleymane Coulibaly. The Club is, and always has been, fully aware of Souleymane’s situation. There was no naivety about the complications that would be involved in gaining clearance for him to play for Partick Thistle.
Before international clearance could be sought, it was a requirement for the Club to sign the player. That essential step began the process, in conjunction with the Scottish and Egyptian FAs, of gaining clearance for Souleymane to play for the Club. There is no cost to Partick Thistle associated with having taken this step.
The Club remains determined to do everything they can to ensure Souleymane is fully registered and available to play as soon as possible.
