Birmingham trial for Carlo Costly?

After spending £6.5million in two days, Birmingham are looking at another Costly player - Honduran striker Carlo Costly.

The 25-year-old, who plays for GKS Bełchatów in Poland and has also been linked with a move to Plymouth Argyle, will undergo a trial at St Andrews, according to Sentanta Sports.

A good idea or a potential Costly mistake? It's impossible to tell (which is why a trial would make sense) as the Polish league is very different from the Premier League and Honduras do not have the best track record of producing top-level players - whether they be regular internationals, as Costly, is or not.

However, speculation remains that Steve Bruce would have signed fellow Honduran Wilson Palacios if he hadn't moved to Wigan - speculation that seems to be confirmed by the fact Bruce signed Palacios for Wigan when the player's loan spell at Birmingham expired.

Can't see it. Though he doesn't look too bad in that clip - though everyone always looks good in clips.

Ah, don't write him off yet. Agreed that a trial is a good way to go and we're not going to have to bust the bank for him. But I'd guess he is low down the list, behind Samaras and the Argentina kid. Just a guess, though.
