FRENCH midfielder Fabrice Fernandes is training with Doncaster Rovers after coming out of retirement.

The 32-year-old joined up with the Doncaster squad on Thursday after a four-year exile from the game.

The former Southampton and Fulham playmaker quit the game after failing to make a first team appearance for French side Le Havre in 2008 following a short stay at Romanian outfit Dinamo Bucharest.

Rovers boss Dean Saunders said: “Fabrice retired when he was 29 but he has got his appetite back for the game.

“He’s obviously well short on fitness but we’ll have a look at him in training and take it from there.”
