Obasi joins Sunderland on trial

Nigeria’s Chinedu Obasi on trial at Sunderland

The forward has been handed a lifeline by the Black Cats after been shipped out of by Die Königsblauen owing to
injury woes
Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has confirmed the club have handed a trial to Nigeria international Chinedu Obasi.
The 29-year-old was released from German side Schalke 04 in the summer owing incessant injury woes, and the Black Cats who are aiming to revive their stuttering start in the English topflight are keen to sign him should he impress during his probationary stay at the Stadium of Light.
"There's a triallist in at the moment. He used to play for Schalke but he's been injured," Allardyce was quoted by
"He's a Nigerian international and we are just seeing because he's got a reasonably good CV, in terms of where he's played before.
"He has been fraught with a bad injury, which is why he's not been fixed up with a club yet, but we'd like to see him for this week and perhaps next week.
"But I need someone who has an impact now, not in three weeks time, so it will be a difficult task I think.
“But he's here and if he can show us anything we haven't got then there maybe something we can do."
Obasi who boasts of 18 international caps with Nigeria with four goals joined Schalke in 2012 after an impressive run with TSG Hoffenheim where he scored 25 goals in 91 Bundesliga outings.
