Derby County have handed a trial to Marseille midfielder Salomon Olembe, according to L'Equipe.

Olembe is looking for a fresh challenge after his contract at the Stade Velodrome was not extended.

The 26-year-old has previously had a loan spell at Leeds, and Billy Davies is considering bringing him back to England.

However, Derby could face competition from Werder Bremen and Almeria, who are both keen on the Cameroonian.

Meanwhile, Marseille are set to sign goalkeeper Steve Mandanda as the club's new number two.

The 22-year-old impressed last season with Ligue 2 side Le Havre, leading to interest from a host of clubs around Europe.

Aston Villa took Mandanda on trial earlier this summer, but it appearsĀ l'OM will win the race for the former France Under 21 international.
