Former Rover Martin Olsson is set to spend a week training with Championship side West Bromwich Albion.

Olsson has been away with the Sweden national team in a training camp in Doha, but asked to be released from national duty to return to England.

The 30-year-old, who played 143 times for Rovers between 2006 and 2013, is a free agent after leaving Swansea City in the summer.

But keen to earn a place in Sweden’s Euro 2020 squad, Olsson is hoping to win a permanent contract having been short of football of late.

He played 20 times for Swansea City last season, but has had no competitive action since December 2018.

And the Baggies, who top the Championship table, are set to offer Olsson the chance to earn a deal with the club during a week-long training spell.

Olsson revealed over the weekend to the Swedish press that he was close to agreeing a deal at an English club, with Slaven Bilic on the look-out for options at left back with news that Kieran Gibbs faces a month on the sidelines.

“I have been training hard and (on Friday) came a call and now I need to go back. (Sweden coach) Janne (Andersson) knew about this and was okay with it if this were to happen,” Olsson told SVT Sport.

Olsson has won 48 caps for his national team but sat out Sunday's friendly win over Kosovo.

He left Rovers in 2013 to join Norwich City where he spent three-and-a-half years before moving to Swansea City for around £4million.
