West Bromwich Albion have taken former Liverpool flop Bernard Diomede on trial.West Bromwich Albion have taken former Liverpool flop Bernard Diomede on trial for a week.
The 30-year-old went to Anfield for £3 million from Auxerre in July 2000, although was restricted to just one league start during his time under Gerard Houllier.
Diomede made three appearances as France won the World Cup in 1998, however his career in England never took off and now Baggies boss Bryan Robson is willing to give the winger a chance.
"Bernard's a free agent," Robson told the club's official website.
"He was at Liverpool for a few years and I saw him play a couple of times but he never really had a good chance there.
"He's certainly worth a look at and he'll be staying this week with us.
"He's a left-sided midfielder more than a central midfielder."
Diomede has already been on trial with Toulouse, Espanyol, Bolton and Manchester City this season after leaving French outfit Ajaccio in the summer.
