Former Manchester United and England defender Kieran Richardson is currently training with West Brom, according to a report in the Birmingham Mail.

The 33-year-old has been out of football ever since he left Cardiff City back in 2016, but reports in the media suggest that he is looking to sign for a club after two years as a free agent.

And it is West Bromwich Albion, a club that he spent a season on loan at, that he has decided to train with ahead of the return of the Sky Bet Championship.

Despite not playing a competitive game for 18 months, the Birmingham Mail reported that Richardson looked match fit during the Baggies first pre-season game on Saturday.

Whether or not Richardson is simply training with West Brom or there is the potential there for a contract to be signed remains to be seen, but the Baggies would certainly be getting an experienced player.

Richardson started his career at West Ham United, before moving to the famous academy at Old Trafford. He graduated through there, before going on to make 50 appearances for the Red Devils.

He was then sold to Sunderland for a fee in the region of £5.5 million, playing over 140 times for the Black Cats in his five years at the club.

Since then, Richardson has enjoyed spells at Fulham and Aston Villa, before joining Cardiff City.

His experience extends beyond club football as well, with the left sided player having made eight appearances for the senior England team between 2005-06.
