Leeds United manager Gary McAllister has given a trial to Ivory Coast striker Georges Ba.

The 29-year-old has spent most of his career in France having played for the likes of Nice, Montpellier, Le Mans and Troyes.

McAllister has already seen the striker in action after he played 81 minutes of Leeds' reserves clash with Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.

Ba failed to find the back of the net before being replaced by youngster Tom Elliott late on.

Former Stockport County man Anthony Elding, who recently opened his Leeds account in their 2-1 defeat to Cheltenham, grabbed both goals in a 2-2 draw.

Although McAllister recently swooped for Dougie Freedman the former Whites captain may well opt to hand Ba a deal to further strengthen his options between now and the end of the season.
