French striker Fabrice Pancrate is determined to grasp his opportunity to earn a contract at Sheffield United.
Pancrate is available on a free transfer after leaving Paris St Germain in the summer and is spending the week on trial at Bramall Lane.
He trained with Portsmouth during pre-season and had also attracted interest from Burnley, with Owen Coyle wanting to see the 29-year-old on trial before offering a contract.
A move to the Championship is now an option for Pancrate, who played for the Blades' reserves in Tuesday's 2-1 defeat by local rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
"I have one week here," Pancrate told skysports.com. "They want to see me, so I will go for it.
"I have always wanted to play in this country, and the Championship is a very good league, so let's wait and see."
In addition to Pancrate, the Blades also gave Henri Camara, Elliot Omozusi and Facundo Zampa run-outs in the second-string clash with the Owls.
