Middlesbrough have handed a trial to non-league winger Samuel Folarin just a few weeks after he spent time at Charlton Athletic, according to All Nigeria Soccer.

A left-winger of Nigerian descent, the youngster currently plays for Tooting and Mitcham in the Isthmian League South Central, recently forcing his way into the Terrors’ first team plans after impressing at reserve level.


All Nigeria Soccer claims that he has been offered the chance to prove that he belongs at a much higher level with Championship outfit Middlesbrough handing him a trial.

Folarin could be offered a professional contract with the club should he impress over the next two weeks.

Folarin will be desperate to prove his worth, particularly as he could be given an opportunity to play alongside Nigerian legend John Obi Mikel at the Riverside should everything go to plan.

The report adds that the speedy wide man recently had a spell at League One play-off hopefuls Charlton Athletic, although it is not certain why the London club decided against snapping up Folarin once his trial came to an end.
