Former Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi has been training with Notts County and could be offered a short-term deal, according to reports.
The 35-year-old, who came through the ranks at St James' Park and spent 14 years with the Tyneside club, is a free agent after leaving Fleetwood Town, so could be signed after the closure of the transfer window.
According to BBC Sport, Notts player-manager Kevin Nolan has taken his ex-Newcastle teammate on a trial basis at the League Two club and could take him on to help the Magpies battle relegation.
Notts signed five players in the final 36 hours of the January transfer window, with Nolan also registering as a player.
Arsenal defender Marc Bola, Nottingham Forest midfielder Jorge Grant, Hull City defender Josh Clackstone and West Bromwich Albion forward Tahvon Campbell all joined on loan on Tuesday, while Blackpool winger Mark Yeates signed a permanent deal the previous day.
