Man City take Al Qahtani on trial
Saudi Arabia striker Yasser Al Qahtani
Al Qahtani starred for Saudi Arabia in the 2007 Asian Cup
Manchester City have handed a trial to Asian player of the year and Saudi Arabia captain Yasser Al Qahtani.

The 25-year-old Al Hilal striker has arrived in Manchester with his club's president Prince Mohammed Bin Faisal and his agent Turki Al Mukairin.

"I'm now in England after I got an invitation letter from Manchester City," Al Qahtani said.

"I am glad to train with such a good club in England and I will try to prove that Saudi players are good players."

606: DEBATE

Al Qahtani joined Al Hilal from Al-Qadisiya for a fee of around 2.5m in 2005.

He helped Saudi Arabia reach the final of the Asian Cup in July and has continually been linked with a move to a European club.

Al Qahtani was offered the chance to train with Chelsea when he was crowned Asian player of the year in November.
