Yakubu Aiyegbeni on trial at Coventry City

Veteran Nigerian striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni is training with English club side Coventry City with a view of signing a deal with them.

Yakubu signed a one-year deal with Turkish side Kayserispor in August 2015 but has left the side to return to England where he had the most successful spells of his career.

The 34-year-old is now training with Coventry City who are in the English third tier and coach of the side Russell Slade has revealed that he is interested in signing the striker if he proves his fitness.

“As you know, he’s played in the UK and his scoring records are very good,” Yakubu told Coventry Observer.

“He is 34 now, his last club was in Turkey. He hasn’t played for a while which is the only concern, but great pedigree. Goals wise, it is one in two.

“If that is the sort of thing he can do for us then we’ve got to be interested.”

This is a return to England where the veteran striker has played for the likes of Portsmouth,Middlesbrough F.C.,Everton,Leicester City,Blackburn Rovers and Reading.

He scored 96 goals in English top flight between 2003 and 2002.
