Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale says he has not ruled out signing free agent winger Rohan Ricketts.

The 29-year-old former Tottenham and Wolves player is training with the club after being released by Shamrock Rovers in January.

"He's unattached at the moment and wants somewhere to train," Tisdale told BBC South West.

"In the process he's putting himself on show and we're looking at him so I wouldn't rule it out."

Ricketts began his career as a youngster at Arsenal before moving to Tottenham in the summer of 2002, making him then just the fourth player to move between the two North London rivals.

He has also played for Barnsley, MLS side Toronto and Moldovan side Dacia Chisinau.

Ricketts has revealed on Twitterexternal-link that he would like to sign a deal at St James Park.

"Thanks for all the kind words from ECFC fans. I just want to get into a red and white shirt now and help keep the club in League One," he tweeted.

Exeter have brought in Fulham striker Lauri Dalla Valle and Southend defender Pat Baldwin in the last week as they fight against the drop.

They are second from bottom in League One and face a crucial game against relegation rivals Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday night.

"Massive game tomorrow for ECFC, will be tough against an improving Wycombe team. Was hoping to be involved in some way but still waiting," Ricketts added.
