Hearing from sources that Dons have 3 foreign players in on trial.


Lorenzo Davids (Edgars nephew), Bossu and Redallou.


Know nothing else about them at all.

I suspect they may be Dutch  :thumbsup:

Now, I await endless, relentless mocking for this. Lorenzo Davids is utterly amazing in Football Manager. Left back or Left wing. If he's half as good in real life as he is on that, he'll be the best left back we've had in a decade.


Wouldn't be hard when the competition is McAllister, McQuilken, Byrne, Foster etc etc and so on and so forth...

It's nae him:


The Dons have given three trialists an opportunity to win a deal at Pittodrie. 6 foot 7 inch French goalkeeper Bertrand Busso who played for Walsall last season. 27 year old Dutch striker Iwan Redan from Willem II, who was on loan at Cardiff last season, and Edgar David's nephew Sevanja Davids have also joined the club.

Iwan Redan:


However in late December 2005 he and Dutch international player Kevin Bobson were relegated to Willem II's second team because their mental and physical performances were considered to be weak.[4] As a result Redan wanted to leave the club and went on trial to several clubs like Preston North End, Sheffield Wednesday, Ipswich Town and CD Numancia, but did never sign a contract and returned to Willem II.[5] Since then he hardly played any matches until he became a regular again in the 2006/07 season and even became the team's captain. Willem II was however performing badly and was found in the lower rankings of the league all the time. During a KNVB Cup match against De Graafschap Redan headbutted team mate Kristof Imschoot and the Willem II board decided Redan had to leave the club.

Presume we will sign the Davids character then claim we didn't realise he wasn't the other guy ?


From snooping around Google it seems he was part of the Feyenoord youth squad that won the Dutch youth cup last month and has been released. Might be worth a punt.

What's this? players on trial?


If they are anything like the last lot of trialists, they'll be found guilty too!  ;D
