Released Stoke City midfielder Rory Delap is training with Burton Albion.
He will continue to train with the club this week and their location could swing it for the Derby-based defender.
"I've known Gary (Rowett) for years and he gave me a ring to come down and look at things," Delap told the Burton Mail.
"Burton would be brilliant, but it's got to be right for the club and me. I've had a few offers but none really viable thinking about my family."
