For how long can players switch ... did FIFA set a deadline?

Exodus my ass. Some players who couldn't even make Albania's bench left.

I guess Rashica has a bit of potential but honestly, I think he's overrated. Rrahmani is ok but he was a 5th choice CB for Albania. Kosovo needs these players more than Albania right now.

The Swiss dudes are not moving. Januzaj is not even picking up the phone..

@Foefke , September 4 is the deadline

It makes sense that it's a short window because a longer one would create a giant mess and it would be too unfair. Teams need to know now on what they'll be working with for the qualifiers. If you wanted to play for Kosovo you the have a chance to do it right now, simple as that. Giving you 1 or 6 months to think about it would be silly.

According to Granit Xhaka, FIFA's take on the situation is the following. If a player represented another association post the admission date of Kosovo to FIFA then a switch can no longer take place. So any contributing player at EURO2016 is not eligible to switch to Kosovo ... players like Xhaka, Shaqiri, Behrami, et al. ... and, like you said, no more switches from September 4 onwards (first day of European WCQs and Kosovo plays their first tie the next day).

Zeneli has been given permission to represent Kosovo. Used to be a Swedish u21 international and has been handy for Heerenveen.

Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"
