FORMER Wolverhampton Wanderers left-back Scott Golbourne is training at Southend United, Echosport understands.

The 30-year-old defender has also played for Barnsley and was released by Bristol City at the end of last season which he ended on loan at MK Dons.

Blues boss Chris Powell said: “We’ve had a player in training with us this week to have a look but it’s very difficult."

“They haven’t been with a club and it’s now November so everyone is really at their peak fitness because we’ve had a few games.

“For someone to come in cold is very tough but I’m always open minded and I’m always on the lookout.”

Golbourne has played 409 games during his career.
