Jason Koumas is hoping to resurrect his career with Championship Sheffield Wednesday after being released by Wigan 16 months ago.
"Jason is looking all right," Owls boss Dave Jones said.
"He played 80 minutes in the practice match last Tuesday, and he is getting fitter and better all the time.
"It is an opportunity to have a look at him. We are getting Jason fit, and we will assess it day by day with him."
