The Trial of Pancrate
Owen Coyle has been taking a look at French winger Fabrice Pancrate and the Clarets gaffer is reported to have offered him a trial at Turf Moor
Pancrate, 29 recently left Paris Saint-Germain and is currently a free agent.
The Paris-born Frenchman, started his professional career with Louhans-Cuiseaux in 1999 before joining Guingamp in 2000.In August 2002 he signed for Le Mans before joining Paris Saint-Germain in 2004
He then played for Real Betis after signing for them on loan in 2007 and played his first La Liga match against Athletic Bilbao in February, 2007. Another loan spell at Sochaux followed in the 2007-8 season and he was finally released by PSG after spending five years with the club.
He appears to be quite a versatile player able to play in midfield, on the right wing or as a central striker.
Stoke and Wolves were also keen to make a summer move for him earlier in the year but that interest seems to have fizzled out. He was also attracting close attention from Everton and Hull over the last twelve months.
