Check out our at-a-glance guide to how the transfer embargo will affect Leeds United.

Restrictions:

Not allowed to pay transfer fees/ compensation fees for incoming players.

Not allowed to pay a loan fee to another club.

Cannot pay wages to a new player of more than £600,000 per annum.

Cannot have more than 24 ‘established players.’

Restraints apply from January 1, 2015 for the remainder of the current campaign.

The crucial BIT:

‘Established players’ are players aged 21 or over that have made at least five starting appearances for the club. 
United only have 20 of these players, not 24.

Room to manoeuvre:

Allowed to bring in four more ‘established players’ (club currently has 20 included those players loaned out).

Permitted to sign a goalkeeper on an emergency basis.

Opportunity to have embargo lifted at the end of the season by demonstrating club has stayed within the maximum permitted deviation of £6m (£3m operating loss plus £3m shareholder investment) for the 2014-15 season.
