LAS PALMAS: UD Las Palmas said it has received permission from La Liga and the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) to sign a player to fill the gap left after the transfer of Jonathan Viera to Chinese side Beijing Guoan.

Earlier, Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez said on Monday -- after announcing Viera's transfer -- that he had consulted La Liga whether the club could seek a replacement and received a negative response, reports Efe.

But the Canary Island club said on Twitter on Tuesday that both institutions will now allow them to incorporate a new player as long as he meets the relevant FIFA and RFEF requirements, reports Efe.
