Peter Grant has confirmed on the club's official website that former Cameroon international defender Lucien Mettomo is currently on trial with the Canaries.

Speaking to canaries.co.uk Grant said: “Lucien is out of contract and we are taking the opportunity to have a look at him.

“He comes with great credentials having played at the very highest level, but one thing he is short of is match fitness.

“We'll assess the situation and make a decision on him over the course of the next few days.”

Lucien began his career at French side St Etienne, making 81 league appearances, scoring nine goals. He then moved to England in September 2001 joining Manchester City for £1.5million.

The 30-year-old made 27 league appearances for the Blues, seven as a sub, scoring one goal.
