Former Tottenham and Portsmouth defender to spend week with Blues

Town have taken former Tottenham and Portsmouth defender Ricardo Rocha on trial.

The 33-year-old defender trained with Blues yesterday with boss Paul Jewell telling the Club website: “Ricardo is here for the week and we will take it from there.”

Rocha made his name with Braga before joining Portuguese giants Benfica in 2002, playing Champions League football for the club.

He arrived in England in a £3m move to Tottenham in 2007 but his first-team chances were limited at White Hart Lane and after a year on loan at Standard Liege, he joined Portsmouth in 2010 where he went on to make 76 appearances before becoming a free agent at the end of last season, with the club relegated to League One.

He is capped six times by Portugal.
