Valid point brought up by another poster on a thread got me thinking.

I've always wondered have we ever scouted Asian leagues or MLS. Surely there's gems in those leagues. Work permits may be an issue but I'm not sure these days.

Work permits, and the costs involved in setting up a scouting network, probably rule it not worth our while. Which is a shame, as we probably are missing out on otherwise affordable players.

I think we should be primarily focussed on the Scottish & Scandinavian markets, Scottish players playing in England, and probably looking for gems in the League of Ireland.

You're most likely right on the cost of scouting such leagues. Pity though.

European leagues in general should be easily accessible for our scouts I would have thought.

Don’t know re the original post but one of our scouts is pretty much constantly in Europe watching games over next two months

What effect will Brexit have on free movement of European footballers?

thst might be why we’ve largely stuck to British players in the last transfer window?
