Now Newcastle United have handed a trial to Mehdi Abeid’s brother Walid.
The 18-year-old midfielder turned out for the club in a behind-closed-doors reserve friendly against Sunderland yesterday afternoon.
Abeid, the younger sibling of Mehdi, also a midfielder, played the second half of the game at the Academy of Shite.
He has been training with Willie Donachie’s side over the past fortnight.
James Tavernier, Adam Campbell, Jak Alnwick and Curtis Good turn out for United, but the Mackems won 4-0.
