Speedy striker Collin Samuel is hoping to make a good impression on new Dundee United manager Gordon Criholm as he attempts to cement a regular striking position with the club for the upcoming Premier League season.
Samuel believes that his recent selection in the T&T Gold Cup squad could pave the way for him catching his deadly form which saw him rise to prominence at Falkirk, a couple of seasons ago.
Samuel featured on the scoring charts there, to earn a trial at Everton, but since his move to Dundee, he has failed to really continue his prolific form, following his move from CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh.
“I think that getting into the team for the Gold Cup has come at a good time for me. I haven’t been around the guys for a while and hopefully now this coach can see what I can do and I will be given the chance to prove myself,” Samuel said after his first training session under Leo Beenhakker in Fort Lauderdale on Monday.
Coventry City meanwhile, club of local striker Stern John, is interested in John’s national team-mate goalie Clayton Ince. The former Defence Force goalkeeper has been back in England holding talks over his new contract with Crewe Alexandra but has also attracted the interest of other clubs.
John, currently in Ft Lauderdale with the national team, said he was informed by people at Coventry that Ince’s name had been called as a prospect signing.
Also on the lookout for a new club is Brent Rahim who has attracted the interest of LA Galaxy but also has a Greek club interested in his services.
