Springbok has trial with Addicks

Charlton have taken Strasbourg's South African international Abel M'Phela on trial, reports Sky Sports News.The 21-year-old began training with Charlton this week with the hope of impressing Iain Dowie.

M'Phela spent the whole of last on loan at Supersport United back in South Africa, before which he spent a temporary spell with Riems. He moved to Strasbourg in 2003 after beginning his career with Jomo Cosmos, but he has never been able to hold down a first team place at Stade de La Meinau.

The young midfielder, who has scored three goals in his six international appearances to date, is now spending time in South London with a view to earning a move in January. (Well, anyway, there's no other reason for spending time in New Eltham). Perhaps he will be given a run out in a 'behind closed doors' reserve game.

This is all very good, but Midfield is not our highest priroty, for tomorrow night akllegedly D. Bent is out with tight hamstrings and understandably we would rather have him up at newcastle getting Prem. Goals than pulling his Hams in the Coca Cola, but then we get down to the misfiring hasselbaink and the frankly useless M.Bent and thats it we then have no strike force, even when fit Lisbie does not count. If you then look at the seasons record all goal bar one are from D.Bent, what happens if he gets a real injury??

Apparentely he is a striker according to this Addicted article

Although a troublesome one at that!
