Ipswich Town have offered a trial to former Wolverhampton Wanderers full back Kevin Foley, according to The East Anglian Daily Times.

The 31 year old can play at right back and in midfield and is currently a free agent after a 6 month spell with Danish club FC Copenhagen which ended in the summer.

Foley began his career as a youth team player at Luton Town and successfully graduated to the first team at Kenilworth Road. The right back made 166 senior appearances for The Hatters and scored 3 goals for the club during an 13 year spell at the club which started at the age of 9.

In August 2007, Foley signed for Wolverhampton Wanderers for an undisclosed fee and signed a three year deal at Molineux. After playing a huge part in the club’s promotion to the Premier League in 2009 he signed a four year extension to his contract and remained at the club until his release 12 months ago.

After leaving Molineux, Foley was offered a short term deal at FC Copenhagen by former Wolves boss Stale Solbakken. After 6 months in Denmark, the right back left the club after the expiry of his short term contract.

Foley has recently had trials at Shrewsbury Town and Reading which have failed to materialise but the former Republic of Ireland right back has now been offered a trial at Ipswich Town. Foley will play for the Under 21s side at Portman Road.

Foley worked under Town Manager Mick McCarthy at former club Wolverhampton Wanderers.
