Swedish club Djurgardenâ€™s sporting director Bosse Andersson, has revealed that Newcastle United have offered a trial to right-sided midfielder Lance Davids.
Lance Davids – has played 6 times for South Africa
Andersson said today:
â€œNewcastle has sent an invitation to Lance and he will be on trial there all this week,â€
The 22-year-old South African is expected to play in next monthâ€™s African Cup of Nations.
Davids came to Djurgarden from TSV 1860 MÃ¼nchen in Germany at the start of the 2006 season, but had a tough time establishing himself as a regular starter at the beginning of last season. However, as the season went on, Davids became a regular name in the DjurgÃ¥rden starting line-up. During this season Davids has played on the right wing as a midfielder, and as a defender.
He has played for the club 39 times and scored 6 goals and has played for South Africa 6 times. He played 22 times for the South Africa Under-21 side and stands just under 5′ 10″ tall.
