STRIKER Steve Marlet, who has 23 French caps, is to spend a week on trial with Ipswich Town next week.
The former Fulham front man played with Blues midfielder Sylvain Legwinski at Craven Cottage scoring 19 goals in two seasons.
Blues manager Jim Magilton said: “Steve has true pedigree and he is going to spend time with us.
“It gives us a chance to look at him, and he has a chance to look at us.”
Marlet, who can sign in the transfer window as he is not currently with a club, said: “It could be interesting because the Championship and the Premier League are a very good level.

“So I wouldn't be against this option.
“My agent has spoken to Sylvain (Legwinski) and the trial has been arranged with Ipswich soon.”
Fulham paid £11.5million for him in January 2002 from Lyon. He has since played for Marseille and German side Wolfsburg.
He spent last season with Lorient in the French First Division and is currently without a club having been released in the summer.
