Burr frustrated by Matt delay

The big hitman has been missing since February as he tries to sort out his British citizenship issues with the UK Border Agency.
It was first hoped it could take up to six months for the situation to be resolved but at present there seems no end in sight.
The 22-year-old is still contracted to Harriers and is eligible to train with them but cannot play because he has no work permit.
The situation arose in February when it was discovered Matt, who moved with his parents to Britain from Jamaica aged just seven years old, had no British passport and work permit.
However, he had attended school and university as well as playing for Sutton Coldfield Town before moving to Harriers.
Upon finding out, the club immediately allowed the striker, who had been courting interest from several Football League clubs, compassionate leave.
Burr said: “There is no news on Jamille’s situation and at this moment in time I am not sure when he will be back.
“It doesn’t seem as there has been any progress at all.
“The lad is coming in and working hard in training and he looks as good as ever.
“He’s done nothing wrong. He’s been here since he was a young lad and has never broken any laws. "
Matt's MP Ms Valerie Vaz has thrown her support behind the striker.
