Mathieu Manset: Offered a trial by Barnsley

Frenchman Manset left Swiss club FC Sion earlier this month and has now linked up with the Tykes for a week-long spell.

Manager David Flitcroft recognises that it will take some time for the 23-year-old to work up to the required level, but has indicated that he would be keen to complete a deal.

"He's trained with us, but he looked a little bit rusty," Flitcroft said in The Star.

"He's not ready now, which we expected but hopefully it won't take him long to catch up with the intensity."

Manset spent a couple of years with Hereford United before joining Reading in 2011 and later moving on to Sion.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
