Tampines Rovers hand Jermaine Pennant a trial

Jermaine Pennant

Former Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant has been handed a trial by S.League outfit Tampines Rovers in Singapore.

Pennant, who turns 33 this month, has been without a club since leaving Wigan at the end of last season.

Nothing came of a trial with Thai Premier League club Muang Thong United in November so Pennant now finds himself heading to Singapore to try and save his career.

Liverpool signed Pennant from Birmingham City in 2006 for £6.7m (rising to £8m) and he did little to impress. He was eventually loaned out in 2009 to Portsmouth.

The Reds didn’t renew his contract and he left on a free in the same year.

He joined Real Zaragoza on a 3-year contract and lasted about 6 months because of his attitude which included him turning up late for training three times in the space of two weeks.

His career has continued to decline ever since.
