Cardiff City have handed Lewis McGugan an opportunity to impress during a trial period, according to The Sheffield Star.
Having been frozen out by Sheffield Wednesday, Cardiff City are willing to take a look at Lewis McGugan in training before deciding on whether to take a chance on him.
The central midfielder last played a competitive game in May 2016 and has been transfer listed since last summer.
The 28-year-old is yet to secure a move away from Hillsborough as his career continues to stall at such a vital stage in his footballing life.
The 5ft 9in midfielder has previously shown his class in the second tier with spells at Nottingham Forest and Watford.
Having amassed over 300 senior appearances in his career, Lewis McGugan provides experience but he needs to secure an exit from Sheffield Wednesday to reignite his stalling career.
Neil Warnock has invited McGugan to train with Cardiff City, where he will remain for the foreseeable future as he seeks to impress.
As he enters the final year of his contract with the Owls, he is actively looking for an exit and Cardiff City could hand him a lifeline.
McGugan will have an initial two week trial with the Welsh outfit, where he will be desperate to showcase his ability, fitness and desire to play football.
Then, it remains to be seen whether Warnock will make a decision on him or allow him to continue training.
