Exeter City's transfer embargo has just been lifted after the club repaid a short-term loan.

City have been unable to sign and register any players this summer after the Professional Footballers' Association provided help with running costs.

But they've already moved fast and signed former Preston striker Graham Cummins who could play in tomorrow's Devon derby against Plymouth Argyle.

We’re pleased to report that the funds have been put in place and that both the PFA and Football League have confirmed that the embargo can now be lifted.

It won’t mean an influx of players to St James Park but it will mean the manager will be able to do a little bit of business.

It has been achieved and everyone at the club is delighted, and now we need to move on.

– Vice-chairman Julian Tagg
