German club give holding midfielder trial

Bundesliga side Cologne have taken French defensive midfielder Peter Luccin on trial. The 31-year-old former France youth international has spent most of his career in Spain with spells at Celta Vigo, Atletico Madrid and most recently Real Zaragoza. But Luccin could be set for a stint in Germany after agreeing to train with Michael Meier's side. Meier told the club's official website: "Peter Luccin is an experienced player for a role as defensive midfielder, he has been on the books of Real Zaragoza most recently. "Due to financial problems at Real Zaragoza he is actually available, he is a Bosman player and it would be still possible to sign him. "We definitely want to see him in action before we are going to make a move for him." Luccin was also on trial at Celtic over the summer but failed to impress Hoops boss Neil Lennon.
