Trollope hails Kuffour deal

23 August 2008 12:27
Bristol Rovers boss Paul Trollope is excited about the prospect of signing striker Jo Kuffour from Bournemouth. The 26-year-old is poised to join the Pirates in a £60,000 deal next week, having scored 14 goals in his one season with the Cherries. Trollope told the Evening Post: "Jo has attributes we have identified that would complement the players we have already got in the squad and he can also do bits and pieces on his own. "For the last three years we have probably lacked someone who could produce a little bit of magic in the final third to get a goal out of nothing. "We have watched and researched him thoroughly and he has a good record of goalscoring wherever he has been. "He has sharpness and pace, but gets in clever positions as well because his movement is very good."
