Former Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor is close to joining Ipswich Town.
Taylor will train with Mick McCarthy's side next week with a view to joining the Championship club.
The 30-year-old left Major League Soccer club Portland Timbers last month.
Ipswich manager McCarthy said: “He’s coming to train on Monday. If he’s fit he’ll be a good asset.
"He’s been out in America playing and we’ll have a look at him next week. He was a very good player for Newcastle.”
Taylor left boyhood club Newcastle at the end of last season.
The former England Under-21 international made 268 appearances for United, who offered him a deal to stay at St James's Park last summer.
Taylor's final game came in the season-ending 5-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur.
Newcastle are due to play Ipswich at Portman Road on April 17.
