South Korean starlet pitches up for trial with Blackburn

According to Jeju United, Blackburn Rovers have offered a trial to South Korean international Koo Ja-cheol. Rovers made an invitation to the 20-year-old in December and the K-League outfit has now given him green light to travel to England on 18th January.

"I thank manager Huh Jung-moo for allowing me to have a trial. I really want to become a Premier Leaguer," Koo said to The Korea Times.

The talented midfielder made his international debut at 18 against China at the East Asian Football Championships in 2008 and was a standout for South Korea at last year's Under-20 World Cup.
