Bradford City boss Colin Todd had taken former Oxford United defender Matthew Robinson on trial.
The 31-year-old is the latest player Todd is considering in the left-back role with his Valley Parade squad, with the player set to face League Two side Boston United in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.
The former Southampton, Portsmouth and Reading player was one of eight players to be axed by Oxford following their relegation into the Nationwide Conference last term.
Despite being linked with League One rivals Gillingham, Robinson is hoping to overcome the disappointment of relegation by landing a contract with The Bantams.
"It was very difficult to pick yourself up from something like that," Robinson told the Telegraph & Argus.
"I was out of contract and going down meant they (Oxford) weren't in a position to offer me anything anyway.
"This is a very good opportunity for me because Bradford are a big club. I've played most of my football around the south and it's a long way to come, but it's down to me to impress.
"Bradford have a lovely stadium and a great reputation as a club with a lot of history. They would be a fantastic club to join, although there is nothing definite at the moment."
