LUFC Two trialists to make Norway trip

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson is to take another look at two of the four trialists who have been at the club this week when they travel to Norway next week.

Alexandre Mendy, J. Lloyd Samuel and Isaiah Osbourne played in the midweek win at Rochdale, with Mendy and Osbourne again involved today at Sheffield Wednesday.

Samuel took no part in the game at Hillsborough after suffering a thigh strain, and is now no longer with the club.

Also added to the squad today was Hungarian international left back Boldiszar Bodor who joined following a recommendation to the club.

Grayson was happy with the contribution made by Bodor and says he will travel to Norway with the rest of the squad for the game on Tuesday night.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, "He came in on Friday and trained and did well, we were looking at him today and he`s got a wealth of experience in Holland as well as the Hungarian national side.
"He will go out to Norway with us and spend the next ten days at the club.

Bodor was brought into the club after the injury to Samuel, who is now no longer part of Grayson`s plans, "J. Lloyd will try and get his thigh sorted over the next week to ten days but nothing will happen with him now," he continued.

Grayson was once again impressed by the contribution made by Alexandre Mendy who he says will also make the trip to Norway, "I thought he played well again today. Worked ever so hard and showed some good qualities and he will also come to Norway with us."

The manager will not be taking Isaiah Osbourne on the trip to Scandinavia. Osbourne will be staying on at Leeds and will be included in the reserve team`s trip to Bradford Park Avenue in midweek. "Isaiah is a little bit behind in terms of football work and fitness levels, so he will stay behind and train at Thorp Arch and play for the reserves at Bradford Park Avenue on Wednesday night and we will see where we are when we get back from Norway," said Grayson.

Most have liked what they've seen from Mendy. The Hungarian comes with a good pedigree and it looks like Graysons realised he needs a left back.
