Blackburn have handed a trial to Ghana starlet James Bissue.

The 17-year-old is currently with Sekondi Elven Wise in his homeland and he is rated very highly.

Rovers scouts have picked up on his potential and have now lined up a trial for the exciting youngster.

"We have been in talks with Blackburn over the deal for over a week now and the documents have now been sent for him to travel to England," Nana Agyemang, the technical director of Sekondi Eleven Wise, told Ghanasoccernet.

"He will start the trial on January 4th for two weeks and I am confident he will impress Sam Allardyce because the scouts are already happy with what they have seen.

"Having been involved in training players in England I think James is cut for the Premier League because of his pace and ability.

"James is a world class player at this age and I think Blackburn will benefit immensely in getting him."
