Sheffield Wednesday are trialling former Wigan Athletic midfielder Jason Koumas.

The Mirror says Koumas has been thrown a lifeline by Sheffield Wednesday.

Wales international midfielder Koumas, once viewed as one of the most skillful players in the English game, has been without a club since leaving Wigan 16 months ago.

But the 32-year-old is now on trial with the Owls, whose boss Dave Jones signed the former West Brom star on loan for Cardiff when he was in charge at the Welsh outfit.
