A DELAY in getting international clearance has made Velice Sumulikoski's debut tomorrow a doubt.

The Macedonian international was this afternoon in London trying to push the process along but Ipswich Town are still waiting for all the paperwork to be completed with forms from Turkey still outstanding.

Sumulikoski is planning to join up with his new team-mates tonight in Sheffield and manager Jim Magilton is still hoping eh can be involved.

Magilton said: “It is still work in progress with Velice. We are working diligently to get everything finalised. It is from the Turkish end and we are still hopeful.

“We will make a decision tonight about who we will play but I would like to involve him in some way if possible.”
