Yannick Djalo's no Facebook friend of Alex McLeish
Aston Villa trialist Yannick Djalo may be looking to impress at the club, but he has already made a mistake in the eyes of manager Alex McLeish - by announcing the deal on Facebook.
The Portuguese has not yet arrived at Villa's Bodymoor Heath training ground, and McLeish had been hoping to keep the move quiet.
However, any hopes of so doing were extinguished when Djalo resorted to social media, something the Villa boss is clearly disappointed with.
"We're just going to look at him on trial," McLeish said. "Talk of signing him is very premature. I didn't really want it to be anybody's business, but I know the lad put it on Facebook himself, so what chance have you got?"
McLeish was cagey when asked about Djalo's qualities as a footballer. He said: "Look him up on Google."
