Leeds United boss Brian McDermott confirms that free agent Marius Zaliukas is training with the club.

Leeds United manager Brian McDermott has confirmed that former Hearts captain Marius Zaliukas is training with the club.

The 29-year-old defender has been a free agent since leaving Tynecastle during the summer.

Leeds have taken the player on trial after he failed to secure a permanent deal with fellow Championship side Queens Park Rangers.

"He came on the radar a long time ago. He's been at QPR and he's an experienced player. He's here for a number of days and he has a good pedigree," McDermott told Leeds United's official website.

"He's 29, he's captained Hearts, and to have that bit more experience is important. We have some good young centre-halves here, but to add to that with some experience would be good."

Zaliukas has won 20 caps for Lithuania.
