Burnley has seen their attempt to sign former Super Eagles winger, Victor Moses, blocked by the Premier League, SportsMail reporrs.
The Clarets tried to bring Moses from Russian club Spartak Moscow.
Moses, Burnley and Spartak Moscow were all open to the former Super Eagles star returning to play in England until the end of the season.
The 31-year-old joined Spartak Moscow in 2020 on an initial loan before the deal was made permanent in 2021
But the Premier League club have been informed that they cannot sign Moses on a short-term deal.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last month led to both the domestic leagues being suspended.
As a result, FIFA and UEFA made the joint decision to allow players from teams in Ukraine and Russia to join other European teams on short-term deals until the end of the season – even though the transfer window is shut.
However, the Premier League have ruled they will not accept any requests for new transfers due to concerns over the sporting integrity of the competition.
