Stephen Appiah linked with DPMM

Brunei DPMM FC are set to hand a trial to former Juventus midfielder Stephen Appiah when transfer window opens in June, according to Brunei Times.

The 32-year-old has been a free agent since leaving Serbian Side FKVojvodina in October where he helped them into the Europa League play-off last season.

The captain of Ghana's 2006 World Cup and 2010 World Cup teams have told that Vojvodina were struggling to meet his salary expectation.

DPMM FC have been linked with a move for the midfielder, as the club is reportedly looking for a replacement for the Guadeloupean import.

Auvray has already attracted criticisms from DPMM FC coach VjeranSimunic, as well as fans, on his poor performances and has not has not seen action for the team since their 4-2 win over Geylang International on April 3.

The midfielder was blamed for both Geylang's goals in the game.

Should the deal go through, Appiah, who has 69 senior caps for his country would provide much needed muscle in DPMM FC's midfield with his strong and impressive attributes.

The former Fenerbahce man is also currently a transfer target of clubs in Qatar and China.

"We cannot say much at the moment... we will see how it goes... we need to look at the player... look at his fitness and stuff," DPMM FC goalkeeping coach Hj Zainol Ariffin Hj Jumat told The Brunei Times.
