Cotterill eyes French trialist

05 July 2007 09:43
Burnley boss Steve Cotterill has offered a trial to a French defender, as he looks to strengthen his wafer-thin squad. The Clarets, who have one of the smallest squads in the Championship, flirted with relegation last term, but Cotterill has already added Hungarian keeper Gabor Kiraly and Albanian winger Besart Berisha to his options this summer. The former Cheltenham Town boss told the Burnley Express: "I'm trying to get in a trialist and I'm waiting for him to come back to me on that one. "He's a left-sided defender from France and hopefully we'll be able to have a look at him." Cotterill said at the end of last season that he wanted to bring in at least five new players before the start of the 2007-08 campaign.
