'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Songo'o impresses on trial...

Handed a trial after being released by MLS side Sporting Kansas City, Cameroonian Yann Songo'o seems to be impressing the right people at Blackburn Rovers. Solid performances against Wrexham, Portimonense and Fleetwood has turned Gary Bowyer's head, with the Blackburn Rovers manager monitoring the 21 year old's progress.

Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph, Gary Bowyer seem's keen to possibly add the young man to the Rovers defensive line. 'We`ve been impressed with him. We`ve got him for a little bit longer and we`ll just monitor that situation and see how it goes.'

A solid, robust footballer, Yann has impressed the travelling Rovers fans with his defensive ability, as well as being an attacking threat on set pieces. Yann also fits the bill in terms of Rover's current transfer signings, with free agents high on the agenda.

Yann continues on with his trial this week, hoping to clinch a first team contract at Ewood Park.

Pretty much everyone who has seen him this pre-season has spotted some potential... Probably wouldn't be too expensive either? :)

Well Ryan Nelsen came in as a freebie from the MLS so if we signed him up as another freebie I hope people remember that! Rather than complaining at our now sensible signing policy.

fransavarese, your comment pretty much sums up my thoughts on this. Just because someone is free does not make them useless as much as someone who is valued at say.........50m, could be any good. We have done well with freebies before and if they turn out to not be what we'd hope, no huge loss.

Sensible business this window, probably a good idea!
