News is emerging today that Fifa have rejected Rafik Halliche’s loan move from Fulham to Swansea City.

The Swans have been waiting two weeks to understand whether or not the deadline-day signings of Rafik Halliche and Darnel Situ would be cleared by Fifa.

Fifa have yet to give an official explanation as to why they have blocked the transfer, but it was thought that there was a problem with the paperwork from Fulham.

Darnel Situ’s move is still yet to be decided, but hopefully we will receive better news regarding the young French defender, as he should only need international clearance to be confirmed as an eligible Swansea City player, but you have to ask the question why is it taking Fifa so long?

Swansea City’s bad luck continues, following the injuries to Kemy Agustien, Steven Caulker and Craig Beattie this week.
