Chinese winger Ma Leilei will have a trial with the Newcastle Jets in a bid to fill the final spot on their roster when the Jets arrive in China on August 25.

The Newcastle Herald reported that Leilei was on the radar of the Jets, with the 27-year-old most recently playing in the Portuguese second division for Cova da Piedade.

The winger also spent five seasons playing in China at Tianjin Teda, and Newcastle chief executive Lawrie McKinna told the Herald the Jets were keen to see Leilei in action.

“Ma is training in China and will join us in Shenyang ahead of the game against Liaoning,” McKinna said.

“We will assess him at training but we will also want to see him in games.”
