The 29-year-old was named in Birmingham's development squad for their clash with Coventry on Tuesday.

Castelen is available on a free transfer after leaving Hamburg in June following the expiration of his contract.

The Holland international had a trial at Birmingham's Championship rivals Middlesbrough in the summer, but a move failed to materialise.

Casetelen is now hoping to catch the eye of the Birmingham coaching staff as he looks to win a deal at St Andrews.

Blues boss Lee Clark is keen to bolster his squad and if Castelen impresses during his training stint he could earn a move to the Midlands.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
