If the football department is operating within its budget, the Board does not play a part in the signing of a player. The contract is presented to the CEO and approved by the CEO. However, if any transaction causes concern, (long-term or short-term) to the Board, then the CEO will present this to the Board with a recommendation to approve/not approve. With regard to senior appointments in the Club, apart from his own appointment, the CEO will provide a reccommendation to the Board for approval/not approval. CEO recommendations to the Board are placed on the agenda for Board meetings by the CEO.
