Former Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones is close to finding a new home with the Australian currently trialling at Dutch Eredivisie club NEC Nijmegen.
The 33-year-old has been without a club after leaving English League One side Bradford City in October but is understood to be close to signing a six-month deal with the Dutch high-flyers.
NEC reported on their club website that Jones will train with the club for two days, with a view to agreeing a deal for the rest of the campaign.
Injuries to two of NEC’s keepers - Hannes Halldórsson and Joshua Smits – has meant the club are desperate to add reinforcements to the squad.
If Jones impresses in his trial, he could put pen to paper as early as Monday (AEDT).
The former Socceroos gloveman was released by Liverpool at the end of last season after making just 26 appearances in five seasons for the Reds.
If Jones does agree a deal with the club his first appearance could be on January 17 when the Eredivisie season resumes following their winter break.
NEC will host Willem II.
