Clarets wanted Baradji

Last updated : 02 September 2005 By Tony Scholes

Baradji has been at Turf Moor recently training with the Clarets and he impressed enough for Steve Cotterill to offer him a deal. According to the club both Baradji and his agent were keen on the deal.

They went away and never got back to the club and neither could the club track them down, and it all came to an end this week when he signed on the dotted line for West Ham.

The 21 year old is a left footed central midfielder and impressed those who saw him during his short time at Burnley and this could well be an opportunity missed. I’m sure we’ll be watching his performances for Reading with some interest over the next few months.
