Ex Cagliari and Cesena full-back Gabriele Perico has joined the first-team as a trialist. The news comes from YEP journalist Phil Hay.
Leeds are in the market for a full-back but the fact Perico is on trial clearly indicates reservations on the player. Monk will now need to decide wether Perico will add quality or just quantity to his side.
Perico was capped at 17/18/19/20 level for Italy and has spent his whole career there. Naturally a right-back it seems an odd move, but it’s clear Monk wants to strengthen that area, whether this is what he had in mind is another story. He may well get a run out on Saturday.
Monk will now take a look at the player, and can end the trial if things don’t work out.
