IPSWICH Town are this week giving a trial to 23-year-old German goalkeeper Jonas Sela.

This follows Blues goalkeeper coach Andy Rhodes' trip to Bayern Munich in the close season and the networking that Ipswich are building up.

Sela is a free agent having left Mainz over the summer after their relegation from the Bundesliga.

The 6ft 1in tall keeper has been recommended by former England striker Tony Woodcock, who is now an agent in Germany and is expected to stay with Ipswich all week.

The Blues have also not given up on French international striker Steve Marlet, 33. He impressed during a brief trial a couple of weeks ago and could be back in Suffolk after a pre-arranged trial in Spain.
