Everton Loses Appeal

LONDON () -- Everton will not be permitted to field Andrei Kanchelskis in the first two rounds of the European Cup Winners' Cup even if the Russian winger's transfer from Manchester United finally goes through.


The premier league club said Tuesday that UEFA had rejected its appeal to extend a signing deadline for Kanchelskis, whose transfer is on hold because his former Ukrainian club Shakhtyor Donetsk wants a ?1.1 million ($1.73 million) cut of the ?5 million fee.


"There can be no exceptions," a UEFA spokesman said. "The next registration deadline is January 15, so any players registered then will be available for the quarterfinals and later rounds."
