Rochdale boss Keith Hill will give trialists Dali Gomez and Nathan Woolfe plenty of time to impress in the upcoming friendlies against Everton and Manchester United.
"With regards to Gomez, I had a call from an agent asking if we'd take a look at four French players," Hill told the Rochdale Observer.
"I declined the opportunity to take all four at once - with no disrespect to trialists from the continent, I am a little wary sometimes.
"But I did fancy a left-footed striker and Gomez has done enough during his time with us so far to warrant an extended stay. He will play a part in the game against Everton.
"The same goes for Nathan Woolfe. He's done well and we'll assess him further over the next two games."
