There has been some confusion on the signing of New York City defender, Joshua Robinson. Two clubs in Northern Ireland, Linfield FC and Crusaders FC claimed they signed Robinson on a free transfer, after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.
Both sides tweeted of their apparent latest signing on Thursday evening, but it is yet to be seen as to whom he has actually agreed a deal with.
The matter is likely to be solved by the weekend, and the IFA will clear things up as soon as possible, according to 90mins.
While Linfield claimed they signed Robinson on a four year deal, Crusaders believe they have tied him down for three years.
Despite training with Crusaders on Tuesday night, Linfield seem fully convinced they have got their man, after announcing it on their club website:
“I’m delighted to be able to advise our supporters that Josh Robinson has tonight agreed to join Linfield on a 3 year contract.” Claimed Linfield manager David Healy.
“Josh is a player who I’ve admired and have been keen to bring to the club to increase the competition levels within our squad.”
However, Crusaders also believe that they have signed their former player Robinson, stating that they’ve had a deal set in motion since June 9 on their own website:
“It was very easy to deal with Josh. He was happy to come to my home on 9th June and quickly agreed terms and duly signed a pre contract dated 29/6/17. Its great to have Josh back in the fold.” claimed treasurer Tommy Whiteside.
