Middlesbrough take PSG's Arnaud on trial

Championship outfit Middlesbrough has taken Paris Saint-Germain striker Loris Arnaud on trial.

The 24-year old Frenchman will be watched closely by Boro boss Tony Mowbray who says the Parisian giants are aware that the Teessiders don't have plenty of money to throw around.

"When we deal with a club like PSG we try to let them know our situation and it's still been allowed to happen," said Mowbray.

"It's not been a heavy training week but I can see his talent. I haven't been able to see whether he can apply that talent in a game situation.

"He's a forward-thinking player and he's got all the tools, he's strong and mobile and technical.

"But he's here for us to have a look at him and his personality. Sometimes when players come from overseas the tempo of games and even of training can be too much for some players who come from a totally different culture.

"It's gone no further than that, he's over here for a few days and no decisions need to be made yet."
