Meite joins Town on trial but Pezzoni departs

Paul Jewell has confirmed that Abdoulaye Meite has joined Town on trial, but German defender Kevin Pezzoni has left the Club.

Pezzoni had been training with Blues but hasn’t quite done enough to earn himself a prolonged stay at Portman Road, whilst former West Brom centre-back Meite has linked up with the squad for a week’s trial.

“Abdoulaye has come in and he will be training with us this week,” the Town boss confirmed to the Club website.

“He came in on Monday and he’ll be in again tomorrow. We’re looking at him for a week and we will see where things go.

“Kevin was with us last week and he did okay. I spoke with his father and his agent but the money that they were looking for was out of our level.

“He’s also been playing as a defensive midfield player for the last four seasons or so and really we are looking for an out-and-out typical ‘English’ centre-half.”
