Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni has revealed John Carew will trial with them this week. The former Aston Villa and West Ham United striker is a free agent.

"I think that with Milito's injury the club wanted to look around to see if there's a certain type of player who might fit our purposes," said Stramaccioni.

"Obviously we're talking about free agents within a certain date, so the options are limited. Our directors have identified that type of player in Carew and now he's going to have a trial with us, then we'll decide whether to sign him or not. It's a fairly normal procedure in other countries."
