Watford supporters could soon be chanting another Brazilian name after the club took a midfielder known as ‘Jimaldinho' on trial.

However, anyone expecting a sudden introduction of Samba music at Vicarage Road shouldn’t get their hopes up, as it is Scottish midfielder Jim McAlister who is currently on trial.

Towards the end of last season chants of ‘Lloydinho’ could be heard ringing around the Vic, after former manager Brendan Rodgers revealed Lloyd Doyley’s affectionate new nickname.

And supporters of Scottish Division One-side Greenock Morton refer to McAlister as ‘Jimaldinho’ due to his skilful nature.

McAlister is a right-footed player who plays at left back and left midfield and made his debut at the age of 17.

The 23-year-old is expected to move away from Greenock and played 25 minutes for Romanian champions Unirea Urziceni, who are managed by former Chelsea full back Dan Petrescu, in a friendly against Plymouth Argyle on July 22.
