Former Leeds United, Brentford and Ipswich Town midfielder Jonathan Douglas is currently training with League Two side Luton Town, according to Get West London.

The Republic of Ireland international is hoping to earn a deal with the Hatters. He has been without a club since leaving Ipswich Town at the end of last season.

The 35 year-old has bags of experience playing in the Football League. He started his career in Ireland before moving to Blackburn Rovers in 2000. He spent five years with Blackburn and had loan spells with Chesterfield, Blackpool and Gillingham during his time at Ewood Park.

Douglas moved to Leeds United in 2005 and spent four years with the Whites. He racked up nearly 150 appearances for the Elland Road club. He then in 2009 moved to Swindon Town. He was a popular figure at Swindon and helped them reach the League One Play-Offs in his first season. However, when they were relegated to League Two the season after, Douglas moved onto Brentford.

Douglas was Player of the Year for Brentford in his first season there in 2011/12. He had a very successful time with the Bees who were promoted to the Championship during his time there. He joined Ipswich Town on a fee transfer in 2015, initially signing a one-year deal which was extended by a further year during the season.

Douglas was released by the Tractor Boys at the end of last season but is still hungry to play football at the age of 35 and he would be a good acquisition for Luton Town as he is vastly experienced in the Football League.
