Afful Fails to Impress in Norway

Ghana defender Harrison Afful has been released by Stabaek of Norway after failing to impress on trials.

The 22-year-old as invited for observation by the Tippeligaen side last week but after seven days of training he failed to make an impact.

Despite failing to impress coaches of Stabaek, scouts of the Norwegian top club will continue to monitor his performance.

"He was sent home today (Wednesday). We will continue to follow him, we have not concluded anything yet," Stabaek coach Jan Jönsson said.

"We have some other things to think about before Sunday. But we should be summing our impression and follow him further."

The news is the latest setback to the left-back's ambition of playing in Europe after failing to land deals in Holland and Belgium last month.
