Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean is hoping to bring Bolo Zenden to the club on a short-term contract until the end of the season.
Zenden is currently a free agent after leaving Sunderland at the end of the last season and Kean is weighing up whether to offer him a deal to strengthen his options at Ewood Park for the run-in.
The 35-year-old has been training with Rovers in recent days and the veteran Dutch international may be brought on board to add much needed experience in their fight against relegation.
The former Liverpool and Chelsea man was spotted at the club's Brockhall training ground on Tuesday where he impressed coaches with his fitness levels, despite having not played since leaving the Black Cats.
Blackburn's assistant manager Eric Black knows Zenden well from his time working with the player at the Stadium of Light and is thought to have recommended him to Kean.
Rovers have been weakened in recent weeks by the departures of both Keith Andrews and Christopher Samba and another experienced head could make all the difference.
