In what smacks of a desperate move, West Brom boss Tony Pulis has taken former West Ham forward Ricardo Vaz Te on trial.
It is understood the ex-Bolton man is training with the Baggies as Pulis looks to strengthen his strikeforce.
Vaz Te has been without a club since leaving Turkish side Akhisar Belediyespor in the summer after six months.
He left West Ham in January after three years at Upton Park following 19 goals in 61 games.
The 28-year-old also played for Barnsley and Hibernian after moving to Bolton in 2003 from Portuguese side Farense.
Albion have scored just three times this season and drew a blank in Saturday’s dull 0-0 draw with Southampton despite Saido Berahino’s return.
Berahino threatened on Twitter to never play for the Baggies again after they rejected deadline day offers from Tottenham but Pulis has reintegrated him back into the squad and he was a second half substitute in the draw with Saints.
