Ivorian defender believes he could compete in the Championship

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."
