Souleymane Bamba impressed on trial with Dunfermline
Dunfermline have signed defender Souleymane Bamba on a two-year deal after the powerful centre-half impressed during a trial period.

The former Paris St Germain player will be available for the SPL opener against Hearts at East End Park on Saturday.

Dunfermline manager Jim Leishman has yet to decide on trialist forwards Noel Whelan and Keith Shevlin.

Irishman Shevlin has shone with Dundee during pre-season but is holding out for a chance in the Premier League.

"I scored four goals in four games for Dundee," said the 24-year-old, who played in Dunfermline's 1-0 defeat to West Bromich Albion.

"They wanted me to play againt Berwick on Wednesday, but I wanted to hold on and try to get a Premier club."

Shevlin played for Shamrock Rovers but has been playing in the US College League for the past four years in North Carolina for UNC Wilmington Seahawks.

He has offers to return to his homeland but would prefer a move to Scotland.

"I have just returned from America, but I played previously with the Irish under-19 squad and with the Irish college team this summer in Turkey," he told Dunfermline's website.

"I will just have to wait and see what Jim Leishman or Alex Rae thinks.

"I am not sure how long I will be here, but I am aware that Dunfermline are short of strikers, so hopefully I can get another game and score a few goals."

Whelan, the former Leeds United, Aberdeen and Livingston striker, has also featured in warm-up matches at East End Park.
