Well the hearing was today not Wednesday.
West Brom have finally been given the go-ahead by the Home Office to complete the signing of CSKA Sofia's Artim Sakiri.
The Baggies were granted a second appeal against a decision by the Department of Overseas Labour not to give the Macedonian captain a work permit, and the initial decision has been overturned.
The 29-year-old midfielder has already agreed to sign a two-year deal with the First Division club, although the deal is still subject to a medical.
If the final details of the switch can be ironed out, the Baggies will pay the Bulgarian club a nominal fee for Sakiri's services.
"We're really pleased with the outcome," Baggies boss Gary Megson told the club's official website.
"It's been a long haul since Artim first came over to train with us for a week last November, but we're delighted to have finally got him."
The Baggies first appeal for Sakiri was turned down at a hearing on 9 July.
But the matter was reported back to Home Office minister Beverley Hughes, who handed Gary Megson's side a lifeline.
Sakiri, the most capped player in his country's history, famously scored directly from a corner against England in a Euro 2004 qualifier at Southampton last year.
So good news for all, he'll be playing with us next season.
All the fans are now really excited.
