The former West Ham United and Bolton Wanderers stopper is without a club since leaving the Hammers at the end of last season and would be a free agent.

Despite being 40-years-old the Finnish custodian is keen to continue playing and his availability has alerted several Football League clubs.

Queens Park Rangers, Bristol City and Preston North End are all said to be weighing up moves for the experienced player, whilst League One clubs Barnsley and Bradford City are also keen to offer the player a deal.

The agile stopper is a Bolton legend having turned out over 500 times for the club since joining them back in 1997. He remained at the Lancashire-based outfit until 2012 when he was snapped up by the Hammers.

Any club who takes a chance on Jaaskelainen knows that they will probably only get one or two seasons out of the keeper, but the experience he could provide a younger stopper could prove vital for their development.

The ex-Finland international is hoping to sort a club out in time to feature from the start of the season.

Preston, Bristol City and QPR fans.. Would you welcome Jaaskelainen to your club? Bradford and Barnsley fans… Surely the signing of the Finnish keeper would be seen as a coup for League One? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
