Sweden international Martin Lorentzson is on trial at League One side Coventry City, reports the Coventry Telegraph.
The 31-year-old has been training with the Sky Blues in a bid to win a contract with the West Midlands outfit, and didn’t do his chances any harm by impressing for the development side in a recent fixture.
Predominately a right-back, Lorentzson, who has been capped once by Sweden in a friendly against Finland in 2013, is available on a free transfer after leaving Átvidabergs FF earlier this year.
He has played all his career in Sweden, beginning with Sleipner, followed by Assyriska Foreningen and a four-year spell at AIK where he became a fans’ favourite after scoring 11 times in 127 appearances.
Coventry have had a great start to the season and are kept off top spot in League One by Gillingham on goal difference, but they face the Gills at the Ricoh Arena this Saturday in a top-of-the-table clash.
Meanwhile, the Sky Blues look set to sign Cardiff City defender Ben Turner on a short-term loan, which will further bolster Tony Mowbray’s side’s defence going forwards.
