Work permit problems scupper move

The Cottagers were interested in the 26-year-old Shakhtar Donetsk keeper, but have given up the chase as Pletikosa is unlikely to gain a work permit.

To be granted a permit, a non-EU player needs to play in 75% of internationals over a period of 2 years: a criteria not met by Pletikosa.
