Can Tchoyi plug the gap?

Can Tchoyi plug the gap?

With Slawomir Peszko, Razak Boukari and Stephen Hunt all injured Ståle Solbakken has a bit of injury crisis on his hands.

Bakary Sako is now our only true wide player in the squad, so the Wolves gaffer has a dilemma.

Does he push the likes of Dave Edwards, Stephen Ward or Kevin Doyle wide? Or give youngsters Anthony Forde and Zeli Ismail a chance? Or does he look to bring in someone on a temporary basis to plug the gap?

The most likely move was thought to be a move into the loan market, but Solbakken has opted to give someone on our doorstep an opportunity to impress.

According to the Express & Star former Baggies winger Somen Tchoyi spent, Thursday, Friday and Saturday with the Wolves set-up.

He trained the first two days with the first team and on Saturday he worked with the development squad. The 29-year-old Cameroon international still lives in the Birmingham area after being released by West Brom and in August had trained with Birmingham.

He scored 7 goals in 41 appearances for WBA and previously played for Red Bull Salzburg in Austria, Stabæk and Odd Grenland in Norway and Cameroon side Union Douala.

honestly, i dont mind Ward on the wing, he is a good attacking player - no idea why mad mad mad mick ever thought anything different. Thing is, he is still a better defender than stearman will ever be ... for me, bigger better news would be Frimpong coming back to us - the bloke is amazing, and a fan favourite too ... Please come back to us !!

I agree, AdMant. We are not going to be able to find a suitable replacement at LB because SS has been drilling the players as a unit so we have to find a wide midfielder. Reports say that Tchoyi is very inconsistent but so were the reports of Peszko and SS has steadied him and improved his all round game. More worryingly, is Tchoyi's lack of match fitness. On the other hand, there's no doubt about Frimpong. He would be a huge asset to us, that is, until his kamikazi attitude gets him stretchered off.

kamikazi attitude - i hear that, he really isn't afraid to put a foot in at all! Tchoyi might be a good acquisition, hes a good strong midfielder who is able score goals, plus he is ex-albion (im pretty sure we have a good history with ex-albioners)

I would also love to see the return of Frimpong. I don't know much about the consistency of Tchoyi but I do know that when we beat the ****e 3-1 a few years ago he was by far the best player in a Tesco carrier bag that day. Stale is his own man .. he will do what's right.

We could even use Wardy up front with Blakey its a thought,i still think we need a left back and a striker but maybe we have a striker who can do the biz with Blakey but because of the obsession with Doyle no one will get a chance the guy does not score goals and when Sako or Blakey miss fire who is there as we cannot say Doyle, no one can fault his graft but we need goals
