Colorado Rapids technical director Paul Bravo is still determined to bring exciting youngster Charles Eloundou to the club.
The 18-year old Cameroonian forward signed a contract with MLS in December before being picked up by the Rapids via a weighted lottery in January.
However, his homeland club AS Fortuna de Mfou refused to release Eloundou, denying him the chance to make the move to the North American top flight.
According to Bravo, FIFA are now dealing with the situation which can still be solved once the transfer window closes.
"The thing with his situation, FIFA can rule even after the window closes, based on the case file (we prepared)," Bravo told the Denver Post.
