Crewe Alexandra have handed a trial to former QPR and MK Dons winger Angelo Balanta, according to the official site.
The Colombian scored in the League One side’s final pre-season friendly, a 7-0 thumping of non-league side Rocester.
He also lined up with fellow trialists Johnny Gorman and goalkeeper Kristian Burzynski in a side made up of mainly youth players and first year professionals.
The 24-year-old spent seven years at Loftus Road, playing just 29 times and scoring on three occasions.
During his time with QPR, Balanta had a loan spell with Wycombe Wanders, followed by three separate stints with MK Dons and most recently he played for Yeovil Town towards the end of the 2012-13 season.
His most successful season to date was the 2010-11 campaign with MK Dons where the Santiago de Cali born wide man hit 12 goals in 49 games in all competitions.
Crewe manager Steve Davis is looking for a wide player following the departure of Byron Moore, who joined local rivals Port Vale in July.
And the Railwaymen are also casting their eye over Northern Ireland international winger Gorman who also got on the score sheet against Rocester.
With the season just four days away, Davis will have to work fast if he is to add to his squad ahead of the season opener away at Fleetwood on Saturday.
He has already added three players to his squad with Scott Shearer, Chris Atkinson and Marcus Haber all penning deals.
