Canadian-based First Mobile Sports Academy has seconded two Canadian players, goalkeeper Jean- Félix Lemieux and striker Philippe Barriault to start training with Highlanders.

First Mobile Sports Academy director Isaac Mbedzi confirmed that the players would be in the country but could not say for  how long they  would be attached to Bosso.

Lemieux and Barriault who are 19 and 20-years-old respectively and both of Canadian nationality, were among the First Mobile team that took part in last year's AC Milan Continental Cup where they finished as runners up.

Barriault was top goal scorer with five goals at the tournament which was held in Cleveland, Ohio last year.

Mbedzi said the players were excited to be coming to Bosso.

Highlanders chairman Peter Dube said they were aware of the project although there were still some issues that needed clarification.

"The project was presented to the club. As far as I am  concerned it was a proposal. There are issues that are still to be clarified such as their welfare when they get here and what the terms and conditions of their visit are," Dube said.
