Ivory Coast international Marco Zoro is available as a free agent and is looking to secure a move to England.

The 27-year-old defender has been without a club since being released by Benfica over the summer.

He claims to have been approached by numerous clubs, with the opportunity there for him to take in a number of trials.

Zoro is, however, determined to secure a switch to England and believes the experience he has picked up in Italy and Portugal would make him a useful asset to a Championship side.

"I can be of help to a team in England," he told skysports.com.

"I have trial offers from various clubs across Europe, but I want to play in England.

Experienced

"I am ready to play in the Championship and there are clubs like Nottingham Forest that I can help.

"I am an experienced defender that has played in top leagues like Serie A. I am fit and ready to play at a high level."

Reports suggest Zoro is a target for the likes of Bristol City, Coventry and Preston.

It has also been claimed that he could make a move to Scotland, with Dundee United and Motherwell keeping a close eye on his situation.

"I am willing to play in Scotland if an offer arrives," added Zoro.

"I am available on a free and ready to stop strikers from scoring."
