Omani midfielder Al Farsi to trial with Wigan

Oman international Eid Al Farsi has been invited to trial with Wigan Athletic.

Oman international Eid Al Farsi has been invited to trial with Wigan Athletic.

The Oman Football Association (OFA) have revealed that the Latics are keen to cast their eye over the 25-year old Al Arouba midfielder who plays internationally with DW Stadium star Ali Al Habsi.

"We have received an official letter from Wigan to send Eid Al Farsi for a week so that they could evaluate his performance and then decide if they want to hire him or not," OFA chairman Sayyid Khalid Al Busaidi told the Times of Oman.

"It's too early to predict (if he will be successful) that but it is great news for Oman Football. We have seen in the past some players were also called for trials by various clubs but I hope Eid could make an impression. I hope he succeeds in it."
