Yet Another Egyptian On The Way?

Another Egyptian star Hosni Abd-Rabou is claiming that Blackburn Rovers have offered a trial to him.

Ahmed Al-Muhammad is already on trial (with it understood we WILL offer him a deal) with Rovers and now his compatriot, a 24-year-old midfielder (currently on loan at Dubai-based club Ahli from Ismaili) says that when he gets the all-clear he will be undertaking a trial in the hope of achieve a dream move to the Premier League.

Abd-Rabou told Al-Hayat TV: "Abd-Rabou is now waiting on a decision as to whether he can link-up with Rovers.

"Blackburn offered me a trial but I couldn't fly to England due to commitments with Ahli Dubai.

"I'm just waiting for my team's permission to undergo this trial. A Premier League move will be a dream come true.
"

Abd-Rabou also says that Hull City are interested in signing him.

Can our Egyptian dudes please give us some more information on Abd-Rabou please!
Walker
Maybe the most talented egyptian player! Player of the tournament in African Cup of Nations 2008! Can play in defensive/central midfield, got good technical skills. Many in egypt lost interest in him when he chose to play for dubai because of $$ rather than move to europe.

Now this is a star, as best_part said, He made the wrong descion by choosing money over glory. i hope to see him signed by Rovers
OmarZDay
Sounds good, he doesnt sound very loyal though!!!! lol
Mikey D
please god let him be the good defensive midfielder that the axe isn't
Money4midfield
In my opinion he would be the best replacment for Bentley
OmarZDay
Sounds another good footballer then, but I also worry that he might not be very loyal (not that many are these days) and might only be out for himself?!?!
Walker
@ Mickey D & Walker: Correct. Loyality isnt really his strength. i dont like him personally, but theres no doubt about his talent. even mourinho said that hes a player any team could benefit from.
best_part
High praise indeed, it'll be interesting to see if he impresses.

Anyone saw the Egyptian youngester in the trainings? i heard Ince was impressed....any ?
OmarZDay
Not heard anything mate. It is pretty rare we find out anything till official word has spread. However, by the sounds of things these guys are well worth the hassle judging by some of the comments made on here.
