Owls Trial Frenchman

Owls Trial Frenchman

Owls boss Paul Sturrock has revealed he's looking at a left-sided Frenchman who can play in defence or midfield at the club's Middlewood training ground this week.

The player has played alongside Yoann Folly in the youth set-up at French club St Etienne and also knows Owls defender Madjid Bougherra.
And the Owls boss has revealed he came courtesy of the agent that introduced Sturrock to David Friio and Romain Larrieu while at Plymouth - two players who are idolised at Home Park.

He told the official SWFC site: 'He's come highly recommended from a good agent who gave me Bougherra. He was also involved in the Friio and Larrieu deals so he's always given me players of a good standard.

'He's a free agent and I'm very hopefuly he will fit the bill but the proof will be in the pudding. We'll look at him in the reserve game.'

The trailist is set to play for the Owls reserves in their clash with Port Vale at Hillsborough on Wednesday night as he looks to impress the Owls boss for a contract.

Fingers are already pointing towards Sofiane Zaaboub who was at St Etienne as a youngster and has also had trials with Preston Swansea Metz and Plymouth after leaving FC Brussels at the end of last season.

Huh? The trialist hasn't been named by Sturrock, hence not naming him! I mentioned Sofiane Zaaboub because he fits the bill and had a trial with PNE last week.

Sounds like Sturrock fancies him, probably better distribution than Peter "put it in the stand" Gilbert
