Visa issues delay Trabelsi's Man City debut

New Manchester City signing Hatem Trabelsi will miss Wednesday's Premiership encounter with Portsmouth at Eastlands.

The Tunisian World Cup star, who joined City from Ajax on a free transfer last month, is yet to start training with his new club after encountering problems gaining a work permit.

Although that issue has now been resolved, Trabelsi has also been forced to sort out visa issues for the remainder of his family before eventually reporting for training at the Blues Carrington base tomorrow.

However, with a major question mark hanging over Trabelsi's match fitness, the 29-year-old will undergo a series of medical checks before manager Stuart Pearce decides what kind of specific training the experienced North African requires.

It means that not only will Trabelsi miss the Portsmouth encounter, he is also virtually certain to sit out Saturday's televised clash with Arsenal, before being available to make his debut against Reading on September 11.

'Hatem will be flying in tomorrow and hopefully we will be able to assess his fitness and see how he is,' said Pearce.

'His work permit problem has been solved and he has just been sorting out a visa problem with his family.'
