Vaccination status could affect transfer activity

The vaccination status of players could determine whether clubs will actively consider them when drawing up their list of transfer targets.

Covid 19 and the new Omicron strain has once again hit the English game, leaving to a wave of cancellations, whilst other clubs have been forced to field weakened teams.

Health protocols have once again been tightened, with all players require d now to take a daily flow test and, twice a week, submit to a PCR test as well.

Now Aston Villa’s Steven Gerrard and Crystal Palace’s Patrick Vieira have both indicated that the vaccination status of potential players is likely to have a bearing on any recruitment plans that they have in January. The prospect of having any new signing potentially unavailable for a few weeks if they contract Covid would make them significantly less attractive as a transfer target.

And Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp is a  passionate advocate of vaccinations, and insists that al his players are fully inoculated.
