Former Blues get fresh opportunity

Sunderland boss Roy Keane is taking a look at former
Manchester City midfielder Kiki Musampa.
Musampa is training with Sunderland,
having severed his connections with Turkish side Trabzonspor. Keane said: "He is
having a few games for us. We'll probably play him in reserve next week and he's
someone we are looking at. There are one or two players that we're checking out
and he is one of them."He has been in Turkey but he has been released. We are
still looking at things because bringing in players can be a bit of a nightmare
in terms of contracts."Hopefully the work permit situation won't be a problem
and he can have a look at us and we can have a look at him."

Southampton have completed the signing of Cameroon defender
Lucien Mettomo on a short-term contract.The 30-year-old centre-half, who had a
spell with Manchester City in 2001, was a free agent having been released by
Lucerne and Saints manager George Burley has snapped him up following a
successful trial.“Lucien has been here on trial and he did well so we’ve given
him a short-term contract,” Burley told the club’s official website,“We will work hard to get him fully fit and then he will give
us extra cover at the back, where we are quite short with injuries to Darren
Powell and Claus Lundekvam.“He is very experienced and a full international with
Cameroon. He’s played in different countries as well as in the Premiership with
Manchester City.“He’s a strong, dominant centre-half and I’m pleased to have
signed him.”
