Former Dunfermline and Leeds United defender Sol Bamba is training with English Championship club Middlesbrough ahead of the new season (DM).

Bamba is a free agent after leaving Cardiff City earlier this summer. The former Dunfermline and Leeds United man came on as a substitute during Cardiff’s final game of the season, having heroically made a comeback from non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a type of cancer.

He has moved back to Leeds as Bamba looks to continue his playing career. Former manager Neil Warnock has offered him the chance to train at Middlesbrough and he could win a new deal ahead of next month’s Championship start.

Dunfermline provided Bamba his first taste of UK football in 2006 before a move to Hibs followed. He has since played for clubs like Leeds United, Leicester City and most recently Cardiff City.
