Ipswich Town have taken German midfielder Eugen Bopp on trial at Portman Road this week.
The 22-year-old is looking for pastures new after being released by League One club Nottingham Forest at the end of last season.
Bopp follows former Sunderland and Livingston midfielder Colin Healy in being handed a chance to impress the East Anglian outfit.
He will spend the week training with Jim Magilton's first-team squad, as the former Northern Ireland international continues his summer search for new faces.
"Eugen will spend the week with us and we'll see how he gets on," Magilton told Ipswich's official website.
"It will give us time to look at him and him time to look at us."
Bopp has been joined by another trialist in French midfielder Alexis Bertin.
The 26-year-old comes to the Suffolk side from his hometown club Le Havre, who released him in the summer.
Meanwhile, youngster Sammy Moore has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The Chelsea trainee's new deal keeps him at Portman Road until June 2007.
