Senegalese midfielder Amdy Faye has been training with Leeds United and will play for the club's reserve side on Tuesday.
The 33-year-old former Portsmouth, Newcastle, Charlton, Rangers and Stoke man is currently a free agent having been released by the Potters at the end of last season.
He has been training with the Whites over the past week and is set to feature against Grimsby for the reserves, where he will be hoping to sufficiently impress manager Simon Grayson.
Faye only made one appearance for Stoke last term due to injury, but was a regular performer in their first campaign in the Premier League the year before.
It has been a busy summer for Leeds in the transfer market and this may be the last piece in the jigsaw for boss Grayson as he looks to build a squad capable of competing in the Championship following promotion from League One.
Grayson told the club's official website: "Amdy trained with us at the back end of last week and again on Monday.
"He's got plenty of good experience and he's done okay. He'll play on Tuesday and we'll have a look at his fitness levels."
Faye began his career in France with Auxerre and has made 31 appearances for Senegal, featuring in the 2002 World Cup.
Leeds have made a solid start to life in the second tier and the Elland Road outfit will look to move up the table with a win against Swansea on Saturday.
