Former Tottenham Hotspur wonderkid Coulibaly wants England return

White Hart Lane 3

Former Tottenham Hotspur prospect Souleymane Coulibaly is determined to get his career back on track.

Former Tottenham Hotspur prospect Souleymane Coulibaly wants to relaunch his career in England.

The teenager used his Twitter feed to announce he wants to try his luck again in the UK, putting any potentially interested clubs on notice.

He is currently playing for Italian side US Pistoiese, where he is on loan from Bari with who he signed for from Tottenham on deadline day.

Coulibaly signed with Spurs in 2011 after top scoring for Ivory Coast at the under-17 World Cup. His performances were outstanding, and he has a staggering 10 goals in seven games at youth level for his country.

Tottenham had hoped they had signed the next Didier Drogba, only for Coulibaly to fail to make the step up.

He had signed from Italian side Siena, and a loan to Grosseto failed to spark him into life amid rumours of homesickness.

This season he has just one goal to his name for Pistoiese and has been used largely on the wing.

For Spurs he managed five goals in 18 appearances for the under-21 side, but did not make a single competitive first team appearance.

It would be a surprise if Coulibaly landed a contract with a Premier League club, but there should remain enough intrigue about his talent to ensure he gets a chance to rebuild lower down the divisions.

Whether he can take it and how far the 20-year-old can go, will be up to him.
