Former Super Eagles striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni is currently on trial with League One side Coventry City.

34-year old Aiyegbeni’s last club was Turkish side, Kayserispor. He left the club last year after he failed to score in 12 appearances for the side.

Coventry are last in the League One, sitting 8 points from safety. They have only scored 23 goals in 29 matches this season, and need the kind of attacking firepower that The Yak was known for in his time in England.

“He’s going to spend some time with us and we’ll see how he gets on. He’s made a big impression, he’s a nice fella and he’s been welcomed by the team,” Coventry City manager Russell Slade said.

“He’s been away in Turkey, that was his last football club. He’s back over in England now and wants to get back playing as quickly as he can.

“I don’t think we’re a million miles away but sometimes just to find those extra few inches to bridge that gap.

“You know one player can do that to find that spark for you to get you some momentum going forward and that’s what we’re looking for. That’s what we desperately need.”
