Derby are considering a surprise move for much-travelled striker Colin Kazim-Richards after the former Turkey star trained with the Championship club.

The Rams are desperate to improve their options in attack after a slow start to the campaign and Sportsmail understands Kazim-Richards is one of the players they have considered.

The 34-year-old is believed to be a free agent – meaning he would not have to be signed before Friday’s EFL deadline – after playing for 17 clubs in eight different countries in his senior career. He was last with Pachuca in the Mexican top flight.

London-born Kazim-Richards also won 37 caps for Turkey, qualifying through his mother, and was part of the team who reached the semi-finals of Euro 2008.

Early in his career Kazim-Richards briefly had the nickname ‘The Coca-Cola Kid’ after he joined Brighton from Bury in 2005. Brighton, then in the Championship, were able to sign him for £250,000 after a fan of the club won the sum in a competition run by the soft drinks giant.

He also played for Sheffield United, Galatasaray, Fenerbahce, Feyenoord and Celtic and last played international football in 2015

The striker is a free agent and has previously played for Sheffield United and Blackburn
