Richie Wellens: Currently training with Doncaster

Wellens, who made almost 100 appearances for Rovers between 2007 and 2009 and helped them win promotion to the Championship, has been training with Paul Dickov's side since having his contract with Leicester cancelled by mutual consent last week.

The 33-year-old midfielder is now a free agent and has a deal on the table from Doncaster but it is subject to the conclusion of successful investment talks currently taking place at the South Yorkshire club.

He told BBC Radio Leicester: "I've been training with my old club Doncaster. I've got a contract offer but it depends on investment coming into the club. If that materialises then great but it hasn't at the moment.

"There are four or five clubs interested and waiting to see what happens."

After being released by Manchester United in 2000 Wellens played for Blackpool and Oldham prior to his arrival at Doncaster.

In 2009 he joined Leicester but made just four appearances for the Foxes last season and was sent to Ipswich on a month-long loan as he recovered from a cruciate ligament injury.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
