Bradford City manager Peter Taylor has handed free agent winger Seb Carole the chance to win a deal.
The former Brighton and Tranmere man is currently looking for a new club after seeing a return to the Seagulls fall through.
Carole, once of Leeds and Monaco, featured for Bradford's reserves on Tuesday and Taylor admits his fitness is lacking.
However, Taylor is happy with his personality and is keen to see how much he wants a move before deciding whether to offer terms.
"He's a lovely lad and has played at a good level," Taylor told the Telegraph and Argus.
"You look at the clubs he's been at - Monaco, Leeds, West Ham and Brighton - and I know that Brighton wanted to re-sign him.
"It's really down to him to show how good he is. He's not fit enough at the moment."
