Who Is The Mystery Trialist?

Sebastien Bassong, a trialist from Metz, had number 46 on his back when we played Doncaster Rovers, and the fans spent the 90 minutes singing songs about him.

He played well, despite the 1-0 defeat, and Kevin Keegan signed him for £1.5m the following week.

Now the Newcastle United boss has handed trials to a mystery Boavista prospect, who could line up against Valencia on Saturday.

But the Evening Chronicle claims the trialist "won't be considered for the Premiership kickoff against Manchester United".
