PSV Eindhoven striker Patrick Kluivert has been invited for a trial by Sheffield Wednesday.

The experienced Dutchman joined PSV last summer after spending a solitary season with Valencia.

Prior to his spell at the Mestalla, Kluivert undertook a year in the Premier League as he scored six times in 25 appearances for Newcastle United.

He could now return to England after the 31-year-old was offered the chance to train with Championship side Wednesday.

Owls boss Brian Laws confirmed the invitation and admits he is keen to assess the former Milan and Barcelona forward in training.

"I have a strong contact in Holland who is Kluivert's agent," Laws told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"We've invited the boy down, and I want to run the rule over him.

"It is just a possibility and is nothing concrete at the moment, but we've made an enquiry."
