Where Is Davide Somma?

South African international striker Davide Somme appears to have spurned the offer to train with Leeds United, and has been officially been released by the English Championship club.

The desperately unlucky 28-year-old hit-man was told at the end of last season that his contract with Leeds would not be renewed, after a spate of knee injuries curtailed his game time at Elland Road.

Leeds had offered him use of their facilities to continue his rehabilitation in a bid to find another club.

But manager Brian McDermott has confirmed that Somma has been a no-show, and that they have now effectively parted company.

“I haven’t seen Davide at all so I think he’s sorting himself out,” McDermott told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Somma had initially made a big impact for the Lillywhites, scoring 12 times as a ‘super sub’ during the 2010-11 season.

But then his knee injuries struck, leaving his late blossoming career in jeopardy.

At his best, Somma is a clinical finisher with the old fashioned striker’s knack for scoring.

It remains to be seen if he can find another club prepared to risk employing him considering his rickety knee, and if he can then score his way back into contention for the South African national team.

Congratulations Davide!
