Former Nigeria striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni has been handed a trial by League One side Coventry City. The 34-year-old former Nigeria international has been without a club since
leaving Turkish side Kayserispor last year, having failed to score a single goal during an unsuccessful spell with the team.
According to several media outfits, Aiyegbeni is set to undergo a fitness assessment with a view to being offered a short-term deal until the end of the season.
Coventry currently sits rock-bottom in League One, eight points from safety and in desperate need of extra firepower having scored just 23 goals in their 29 outings so far this season.
The Sky Blues boss, Russell Slade, has reportedly earmarked Yakubu as a possible solution to his side’s goal scoring problems.
During his time in the Premier League, Aiyegbeni played for Everton, Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and Blackburn Rovers.
And in his last spell in England Aiyegbeni featured for Reading and scored just one goal in 11 outings in 2015.
Aside from playing in England, Aiyegbeni also played for Guangzhou R&F in the Chinese Super League
