24-year old Bas Savage is a 6'3 striker who began his career at Reading. Savage made 18 appearances for Reading, though 10 of those came from the bench. However, Savage never scored a goal for Reading.
Consequently, the striker was sent out on loan to Wycombe and Bury, where he made 5 appearances for each club. However, the Londoner also failed to find the net for either of those clubs, and eventually joined Bristol City on a free transfer.
Savage made 23 appearances for Bristol City, 15 of which were starts. Savage scored his one and only professional goal during this time. In all, Savage has made 48 appearances during his professional career, 20 of which as a substitute. Savage has only scored one goal in that time, at a ratio of 0.02 goals per game.
Savage's two-week trial period comes too late for him to be included in the trip to Portugal, so 'Big Bas' will spend time working with Steve Holland back at the training ground.
