Georges BaIvory Coast international, Georges Ba who was recently on trial at Leeds has signed for Gillingham.

Whilst on trial at Leeds, speculation was that Gary McAllister was looking to strengthen his options upfront, following Leon Constantine’s loan move and the goal drought Jermaine Beckford was experiencing.

However, Jermaine Beckford found the net twice against Walsall last week, bringing an end to his drought and loan signing Dougie Freedman has continually impressed during his brief spell so far at Elland Road.

The reason behind McAllister’s decision not to sign the Ivory Coast international remains unclear, as Leeds have not issued any statement regarding him, but it would seem the partnership between Jermaine and Dougie satisfied the manager enough that he didn’t feel he needed to strengthen the squad further (a decision he may regret following yesterdays endless array of missed chances.)

Leeds also have plenty of backup in the striker department with Tresor Kandol, Anthony Elliot and youngster Tom Elliot all at McAllister’s disposal.

Gillingham are awaiting for international clearance for Georges Ba, but have so far handed the striker – who was a free agent – a contract until the end of the current season.

Georges BaGary McAllister has handed a trial to 29-year-old, Ivory Coast striker Georges Ba.

 McAllister had his first glimpse of the striker after he took part in a reserve fixture against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night. Ba failed to score, and was replaced by youngster, Tom Elliot after 81 minutes.

Anthony Elding, who scored his first goal for Leeds United in the 2-1 defeat to Cheltenham last week scored twice as Leeds’ reserves drew 2-2.  

Although Gary McAllister now has numerous options upfront, with the likes of Tresor Kandol, Jermaine Beckford, Anthony Elding and Dougie Freedman all available, he may well look to Ba for further strength following Leon Constantine’s loan move.

Meanwhile, Republic of Ireland international Jonathan Douglas made his long awaited return to action in the reserve clash playing the entire game with no problems reported.
