Sunderland have taken Dutch goalkeeper Robbin Ruiter on trial as they look to replace Jordan Pickford and Vito Mannone.
The 30-year-old is a free agent after leaving the FC Utrecht at the end of the season.
Ruiter has trained with the Black Cats this week after Mannone left for Championship rivals Reading in a £2million deal.
The 6ft 5in shot-stopper hopes to prove his fitness after spending a long spell on the sidelines last season with a fractured collarbone.
The player’s agent Dick van Burik told Dutch media: “The club wants to see how fit he is.
Robbin, of course, has not played for six months through injury.
“Robbin has made a very positive impression at Sunderland, something he has also built in recent years at FC Utrecht.
“Now he hopes for a foreign adventure. Sunderland could be a wonderful new chapter in his career. “
Ruiter has also previously been linked with Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven and Ajax.
