Well ….. it may not be the exciting ‘marquee’ signing we were hoping to see before our debut Champions League season, but at least it’s a start!
According to reports Harry Redknapp has completed a deal to bring in ‘the promise of Honduras football’ in 17 year old striker Anthony Lozano.
With three goals in six appearances for his club side CD Olimpia and a stunning return of 11 goals in eight appearances as captain of the U17 Honduran national side, Lozano clearly has an eye for goal. Whether we will ever get to see him in the Lillywhite shirt in a competitive match ….. we’ll have to wait and see!
While the club are yet to confirm reports, they have admitted that the player is at the club on a ten day trial and a number of sources are now claiming that a deal for the prospect is already in place.
If the club do announce the deal as complete, then he would be Harry’s second signing of the summer following the arrival of Brazilian midfielder Sandro earlier in the transfer window.
