South African international Quinton Fortune is close to signing a deal with Italian Serie B club side Brescia pending the result of a medical fitness test.
Fortune was released by Premiership club side Bolton Wanderers last year after an unimpressive period with them. He also had a seven year stint with current League Champions Manchester United, leaving Old Trafford for the Reebok stadium in 2006.
Fortune has been a free agent since leaving the Reebok, and has had failed trials with some English club sides including Blackburn, Sunderland FC and also with Sheffield United .
According to reports monitored on the Italian club's official website, the 31 year old midfielder is expected to train with the club and seal a deal in a couple of days.
