Former Barcelona target on trial at Rosenborg

Muhammed Demirci is currently on trial at the Norwegian club Rosenborg.

The 20-year-old midfielder attended a training session at the club training grounds today.

“Muhammed is an exciting footballer, we will monitor his progress while he is on trial.” Rosenborg manager Kare Ingebrigtsen was quoted as saying by Eurosport.

Demirci was handed a trial at Barcelona’s youth team La Masia at the age of 16. However, Demirci opted to return to Besiktas despite being offered a contract at the La Liga club.

The player once dubbed ‘Turkish Messi’ subsequently went on to make just 14 appearances for Besiktas and aged 19 was loaned out to Gaziantep BB at the start of the season.
