FORMER Accrington Stanley forward Romuald Boco has been linked with a shock switch back to the Crown Ground, two years after leaving the club.

The link which has come completely out of the blue was made in an Irish national tabloid, which claimed John Coleman was set to offer the former Sligo Rovers man a one-year contract in East Lancashire, should the Benin International prove his fitness and determination in a Pre-Season trial.

Boco, who originally joined Stanley back in the Conference days from French Championnat National outfit Chamois Niortais, left the Reds after 73 appearances, joining Irish Premier Division side Sligo Rovers after requesting his contract be terminated.

The 24-year-old scored Stanley’s first two Football League goals on their return, in a 2-1 victory against Barnet, and instantly became a fan favourite.

Burton Albion handed Boco a contract until the end of last season, but decided against an extended deal in the close season, making the Benin forward a free agent again.

Certainly a link that I weren’t expecting this transfer window, but would be a good addition to the squad in my opinion, just depends what his attitude is like nowadays, lets hope there is an improvement.
