Gus Poyet hopes to have new signing Leonard Ulloa available for Tuesday’s trip to Blackburn.

The Argentinean striker was not able to feature at Birmingham today as international clearance was not received in time.

Poyet said: “It's just paperwork. You never know why it goes so slow but it's not in my hands.”

So what are the chances of him being available for Tuesday? Poyet added: “I thought in January things were done quicker at the FA. Apparently not.

“It's not frutsrating, they have got everything and everything is fine and we need to finish it so do the paperwork.”
