Former Tottenham striker Coulibaly eyes return to England

By Graeme Bailey

Former Tottenham Hotpsur starlet Solueymane Coulibaly has arrived back in England as he looks to secure a move to a Football League side, Goal understands.

The 20-year-old Ivorian came to prominence after finishing as the top goalcorer at the 2011 Under-17 World Cup, and joined Tottenham in a blaze of publicity in 2011 as they beat the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester United to his signature.

But after progressing through Spurs' youth system, he moved back to Italy with Bari in 2014.

Coulibaly spent the final part of the current season on-loan at Pistoiese, but is now eyeing a return to the UK.

The striker will, however, not be returning to the Premier League immediately as he looks to secure first-team football outside of the top flight.

Goal understands the likes of Bolton Wanderers, Charlton Athletic, Fulham and QPR are among the clubs all looking to meet with him in the coming week.

Crewe Alexandra, Port Vale, Shrewsbury Town and Barnsley have also shown an interest in speaking to the forward.
