McAllister Hands Trialist Extended Stay

Jamie McAllister has revealed trialist Osagi Bascombe has been rewarded with an extended stay at the club.

Initially joining for training and one game, attacker Bascombe will now spend a month with the club.

Bermuda-born Bascome has previously featured in the youth setups of Aston Villa, Stoke City, Valencia and Levante.

On Monday he scored in City Under-23s’ 3-1 win over Ipswich Town, having previously impressed in a 2-0 victory over Portsmouth.

McAllister said: “Osagi was bright when he came on against Ipswich.

“We got him in for a week on trial and now I’ve extended that for a month so we can have a good look at him.

“He’s looked good in training sessions. He’s only 17 and is eager to learn. He’s showed us he can finish as well.”

City Under-23s return to action away at Swansea City in the PL2 Cup on Friday (December 2nd, 2pm). This is a change to the original fixture list.
