LUFC Leeds giving trial to former saints youngster

Leeds United are giving a trial to former Southampton youngster Gregory Ariyibi.

The American born versatile winger, who is also known as Gboli Ariyibi, played for the Leeds development squad this afternoon in their 0-0 draw with Crewe Alexandra.

Ariyibi, who was a regular in the youth side at Southampton and he also made two appearances last season for the Southampton under-21 side before being released by them in the summer.

The youngster has been having a number of trials since his release from Southampton, including one with fellow championship side Bolton Wanderers.

Ariyibi was interviewed by American website O when the Yanks earlier this season, a website that focuses on young American football talent, and he says he has a lot of clubs interested in his services.

"I`ve had trials at a few clubs, and should be all sorted in the next three weeks or so.

"I am looking to secure a professional contract here in England. A few Championship/League 1 clubs, and possibly Cardiff, want to see me. I would like to be in the Championship. Brentford, Oxford United, Oxford City, Birmingham City and Bournemouth have expressed the most interest in me as of late.

"I am confident that I am good enough to represent the US Under-20 national squad.

"I just haven`t been given the chance yet, but I would love to show the federation what I can do."


Ariyibi completed the 90 minutes for the development squad at Thorp Arch.
