West Brom gave starts to trialists Marouane Chamakh and Momo Sissoko in their friendly against Delhi Dynamos on Saturday.
Recent signing Allan Nyom and Nacer Chadli were also included by Baggies boss Tony Pulis, whose summer transfer business might not yet be over despite the window closing on Wednesday.
Former Arsenal striker Chamakh has been looking for a club since his release from Crystal Palace at the end of last season, and he had been linked with a move to Sky Bet Championship club Norwich City.
Chamakh, 32, had spent the last three seasons at Selhurst Park but managed only seven goals in 59 Premier League appearances.
He lasted only 26 minutes at The Hawthorns before suffering an injury in a nasty challenge and having to be replaced by teenager James Smith, who scored the only goal in their 1-0 victory.
Former Liverpool midfielder Sissoko is in a similar position to Chamakh, having left his previous club Shanghai Shenhua in February after making only 10 appearances.
His last experience of the Premier League came in the 2007-8 season at Anfield, having left midway through that campaign to join Serie A club Juventus.
Mali international Sissoko also played for Paris Saint-Germain, Fiorentina and Levante before making the move to China.
Pulis broke the club's transfer record to sign Chadli before Wednesday's deadline and he was also given a chance to build up his fitness against the Indian Super League visitors.
But there was no place for their late-night signing Hal Robson-Kanu, who was not named among their substitutes.

The Dynamos have also confirmed that former West Brom midfielder Samir Nabi has joined the club - he was released by the Premier League side at the end of last season after 11 years with them.
