Paul Ince: Impressed by Osman Sow during trial spell

Paul Ince: Impressed by Osman Sow during trial spell

The 23-year-old recently took in a spell on trial at Bloomfield Road, which saw him figure in a friendly outing.

He may not have been around the club for long, but he made a positive impression on Seasiders boss Paul Ince.

He feels Sow is worth bringing on board full-time, and terms are about to be tabled.

Swedish outfit Syrianska appreciate that they cannot compete with a Championship club and expect a deal with Blackpool to be completed shortly.

Sporting director Jan Girgo told Fotbolldirekt.se: "It looks like Osman will leave us.

"We would like to keep him, but I can understand that it is difficult to reject a lucrative offer from there.

"There is still a chance, but it is not likely that he will stay with us."
