Moving on again - next stop Japan!
Dirk Lehmann, the much travelled ex-Hibernian, Motherwell and Fulham striker, who trained with Brentford last week, has now jetted off to Japan after being invited for a trial at FC Yokohama, the club coached by former German International, Pierre Littbarski.

It is believed the 31-year-old, who scored for the Bees in a practice game at Millwall last Thursday, is happy to remain in England, but with the possibilty of a lucrative move to Asia now in the offering, the prospect of him joining the Bees seems rather remote.
