PHIL Parkinson admits he has not yet seen enough of Chinedu Obasi to offer him a deal at Wanderers.

The former Nigeria international has been on trial for a fortnight with the Whites in a bid to win a contract until the end of the season.

He scored for the Under-23s as a substitute in a win against Burnley but has since been frustrated by red tape and postponements as he looked for game time.

Obasi could not get clearance to play in Monday’s development squad defeat at Crewe and then saw Thursday’s match at Birmingham cancelled because of the weather.

But Parkinson is anxious to speak with the 31-year-old before today’s Championship clash with Preston North End to see if he can continue a trial into next week.

“It has been difficult,” said the Wanderers boss. “We wanted to look at him in the bigger picture.

“I’m looking to have a chat but it has been a bit awkward with everything that has gone on. He has played at a good standard and he isn’t a young lad.

“We thought he’d be playing on Monday but he couldn’t get clearance and because of the travelling we have been doing it has been tough for me to see a lot of him at all.

“This week we have been restricted with the weather as well. It has been a longer wait for him than we would have liked but he’s a good lad who’s played at a decent standard.”

Ken Anderson said this week he expected Wanderers to make at least one more signing to strengthen their squad for the relegation run-in.

And Obasi – who has played top-level football in Norway, Germany, China and Sweden – has the pedigree to suggest he could make an impact for the Whites.

The striker has played Champions League football as recently as 2014 at Schalke but has now not played competitively for more than a month.

Parkinson is ruling nothing out but appreciates any incoming players at this stage will need time to find their match fitness once again.

“There is a possibility we could still bring players in,” he said. “But if we do make a signing we know it won’t be someone who’s available immediately.”
