The Club have confirmed that they are trailing Senegalese striker Ibrahima Thiam.
The striker has been playing in Belgium with KFC Verbroedering Geel who play in the Belgian leagues second tier. Thiam is out of contract with theDe Leunen based outfit.
It is likely that Thaim will feature in tonight's game vs Neath Athletic.
The 25 year old striker has played in Europe consistantly and is very much a journey man.
He started his career in the 2002/03 season with Dakar UC a Senagal club side based in the Capital Dakar. The then attracted interest from European Sides and then joined Kickers Emden on a free transfer for the 2004/05 season.
He did not stay long with the Saxony based side. A free transfer from Kickers Emden followed to Norwegian side Strømsgodset IF. Thaim only stayed at the club for 1 season and opted for another European hop to Belgian second division side KFC Verbroedering Geel.
He has since had spells with other Belgian sides that include Union Royale Namur, AFC Tubize and KFC Verbroedering Geel.
There should be no work permit problems as Thaim has dual Belgian and Senegalese nationality and under EU work laws he can ply his trade in any European Union member state without the need of a work permit.
