The next defender trialist to be brought into the club is Royal Antwerp player Ransford Addo.

The 25 year old defender was recommended to us by staff at Manchester United as somebody who could help fill our needs at the back.

The Ghana national has had spells with Bordeaux and Club Brugge in his career so far before moving onto Manchester United feeder team Royal Antwerp.

The signs look good for the defender with Baker talking to the Sentinel “‘We’ve brought him in on the basis of information from Man United and so far he has looked fine in training.

‘He fits the bill in that he’s quick and athletic, but we’ll have to see how he goes.”

Addo has only been granted permission to stay until Monday so a decision will have to be made quickly by the Alex management.

Either a permanent or loan deal could be on the cards.
