Former Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell is training at the club’s Finch Farm facility while he looks for a new club.
The 27-year-old left Sunderland earlier in the summer and spent some time on trial at Watford.
He made a substitute appearance for the Hornets in the 2-1 friendly win at Brentford on Saturday, but according to the Watford Observer the club have not offered him a contract.
Rodwell moved to the Stadium of Light from Manchester City in the summer of 2014 and had been earning £73,000 per week – a figure that was reduced to £44,000 after Sunderland’s relegation to League One in May.
