Clubs have a number of options in which to send documents through to the Premier League.
This is helpful to the clubs because they might be having difficulty in getting through with one of the methods.
The fax machine has been retired but clubs have the option of sending desktop faxes and scanned documents via e-mail.
If there is a problem and a club does not meet the deadline then the Premier League Board has the ability to either refuse the application or grant an application and, if thought necessary, impose conditions by which the club making the application and the player shall be bound.
