Italian starlet on trial

Last updated : 20 January 2003 By Martyn Elliott

The youngster, who plays for Pro Vercelli in Serie C, is rumoured to have been on Tyneside last week for the try out, only to pick up an injury during his first training session.

The trial was then curtailed, but Sir Bobby will keep tabs on the former Lazio trainee, who may return for another trial before the end of the season.
