Yakubu Aiyegbeni On Trial With Coventry City
Former Everton and Middlesbrough striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni could be on his way to struggling Coventry City in League One as he arrived the city on trial,
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.
Yakubu is likely to undergo a rigorous fitness assessment to prove to the club that he isworthy of 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, with the Nigerian having netted 140 times in English football during stints with Everton, Middlesbrough, Portsmouth, Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers.
