Russell Slade invites ex-Premier League star to train with the Sky Blues, Coventry Observer revealed...

The City boss has confirmed that ex-Portsmouth and Everton striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni has reported for training at Ryton this morning, but only on a trial basis. 

The ex-Nigerian international has a prolific scoring record in the Premier League, and is currently unattached, having last spent time at Turkish Süper Lig side Kayserispor.

Slade commented: “He’s in, he has had his first training day with us this morning. As you know, he’s played in the UK and his scoring records are very good.

“He is 34 now, his last club was in Turkey. He hasn’t played for a while which is the only concern, but great pedigree. Goals wise, it is one in two.”
