Former Wednesday, Arsenal and Everton striker Francis Jeffers has gone on a ten-week trial with Australian club Newcastle Jets.

Jeffers was released from his contract at Hillsborough after enduring an injury-hit three years in the blue and white stripes.

And his quest to find a new club in England proved problematic, with a trial at Blackpool failing to result in a contract with the Premier League club.

It’s resulted in Jeffers jetting off Down Under to have a ten-week trial to prove his worth to Newcastle Jets.

Jeffers could forge a strike partnership with Michael Bridges at the Aussie club if he’s offered a deal.
