The former England and Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler is in talks with Malaysian Super League football side T-Team about joining the club as player-manager for next season.
Fowler, who's 37, has been without a club since February after he left Thai side Muangthong United where he held a similar role.
Since then, proposed moves to English championship side Blackpool and a new Indian league have fallen through.
Fowler is fourth on the Premier League's all-time top scorers list with 163 after his two stints for Liverpool and spells at Leeds United and Manchester City.
He has also played in the Australia's A-League prior to moving to Thailand in 2011 but goals have proved much harder to come by in the twilight of his career.
