thumbnail Hello,

The Sky Blues have offered the duo an opportunity to impress in training, although Crook is believed to be in no rush to add to his squad ahead of the new season

Sydney FC coach Ian Crook continues to keep his transfer options open by handing trials to ex-Central Coast Mariners and Perth Glory defender Trent McClenahan and former Chile youth international Jose Guerrero del Solar.

The Sky Blues have one spot left open in their 23-man squad ahead of the 2012-13 A-League season, though Japanese midfielder Hirofum Moriyasu could depart yet depart after the club offered to pay out his contract with one season remaining.

While Goal.com understand Sydney FC are in no rush to add to their squad, it has not stopped Crook handing chances to the duo to impress.

Sydney-born McClenahan is available on a free transfer after his AFC Champions League contract expired at the Mariners, while Guerrero is on the books of Victorian Premier League club Hume City.

Former Australia Under-23 international McClenahan, 27, spent nine years in the United Kingdom with the likes of West Ham and Hamilton Academical before taking up short-term contracts with the Glory and the Mariners.

He trialled briefly at new club Western Sydney Wanderers before linking up with their cross-town rivals.

Skilful right-winger Guerrero [pictured with Hume City coach Lupce Acevski] is in the process of attempting to obtain Australian citizenship but represented Chile at Under-16 level.

Having lived in Australia with his mother as a youngster, the 19-year-old returned earlier this year and signed with Hume City.

Guerrero was forced to wait until May for permission to play, however, after issues with the Chilean Football Federation [FFC] and then Primera Division CD Cobreloa held up his international clearance.
