Is Bobsam Elejiko The Answer?

Is Bobsam Elejiko The Answer?

Steve Holland is currently looking at Nigerian trialist Bobsam Elejiko as a possible addition to the back four.

The former Royal Antwerp defender has recently had a trial with League 2 side Gillingham where he has turned down a possible deal to come and spend some time at Reaseheath.

Holland spoke to the official site "We have Bobsam here with us and we will have a look at him over the next week. He has recently been at Gillingham and we are led to believe that they were willing to offer him something. The lad wants to play at a level higher, so we'll see how he gets on. He would come here on a free transfer if we feel he could improve us."

"I've stated all summer that we could do with another defender. Six is not really enough to get through an entire season, so we have been looking to strengthen in that area, especially at centre-half."

"We've had a Portuguese and a French centre-half in and I watched a player last week play for Tottenham's reserves, but he went to Norwich on a season loan instead. You can understand them wanting to go to the Championship and it was the same with Cathcart from Manchester United, who has moved to Plymouth on loan."

Elejiko will obviously be ineligible for any first team fixtures so any decision will be made from the training ground and possible behind closed door fixtures.
