Accrington chief executive unconcerned with transfer embargo

Accrington Stanley chief executive Robert Heys insists "it's not a big deal" to have been placed under another transfer embargo. The League Two outfit, who were hit with an embargo last season, have filed their 2009 financial accounts late and under new Football League rules - which the club voted in favour of - have now seen transfer constraints placed upon them.

Stanley are still able to sign new players but they are currently unable to register them to play in 2010/11.

Yet Heys is adamant the relevant details will be passed on soon as soon as they are completed and insists it will not affect the club ahead of the new season.

He said: "It's not the big issue it appears to be. It's not a big deal. We're very happy it will be resolved."
