Linfield are favourites to offer a lifeline to former Norwich City midfielder Phil Mulryne.
The ex-Northern Ireland international has returned to Belfast and is on the look-out for a new club and Blues boss David Jeffrey has invited the 30-year-old to train with the champions.
Mulryne played for King's Lynn in the Southern League last season and then trained with Cliftonville in a bid to get back to full fitness, but now he wants to secure a club for the new season.
In recent times, the talented midfielder has endured a succession of injuries while a proposed move to the United States failed to materialise.

His career has stalled since being sent home from international duty for breaking a curfew three years ago but now he's looking to the future.

“I haven't had much success getting a club in England so I've decided to come home and give the Irish League a go,” said Mulryne.
“I haven't played much in the last two or three seasons so hopefully I can get sorted and get my career going again. The Irish League is a good standard and I still feel I have plenty to offer a club. I've been training on my own this summer but with a good pre-season under my belt I'm sure I'll be ready.”
