Caley Thistle are running the rule over ex-Ross County midfielder Tim Chow, manager John Robertson has revealed.
The 24-year-old made 52 appearances across two years with the Staggies but found himself surplus to requirements after the club were relegated in May.
Robertson is looking to add a central midfielder to the Inverness ranks before the season’s competitive action begins on July 14 and said trialist Chow could fit the bill.
The Caley Jags manager said: “Tim did very well over the last two years for Ross County, he played a lot of games and has a good pedigree.
“What is potentially in our favour is that Tim has met a local girl and is quite settled so he wants to stay in the area.
“We know what he is like so we will see if he fits in with the squad and go from there. We feel like we’re a central midfielder light.”
Former Rangers youngster Grant Nelson is also still on trial with Inverness and is expected to feature at the weekend as the club fields two sides against Nairn County tonight and Clachnacuddin tomorrow.
Robertson is hoping to add a few more faces but insists he is happy with how things are shaping up.
He said: “We’re still looking but we’ve got good options, six or seven defenders, four or five central midfielders, four widemen and four strikers.
“I’ve been happy with the way a lot of the young boys have hit the ground running. That is encouraging and I’m not a great lover of the loan system just to bring players in.
“He has to be better than what we’ve got and it’s hard to find players who are better than the ones we have there that clubs are willing to let go.”
The club has named Carl Tremarco as the new captain in the wake of Gary Warren’s move to Yeovil, while Aaron Doran has been named vice-captain.
With Tremarco about to enter his sixth season at Inverness, it was an easy decision for Robertson.
The manager said: “Carl commands the respect of his peers in the dressing room, they all look up to him.
“The standards he demands of himself will lead the way for the rest of the team.
“He’s been here a long time and taken the club to his heart. There’s been a long list of strong captains here, going back to Mike Noble, Bobby Mann, Grant Munro, up to Richie Foran and Gary Warren.
“Carl fits that mould of being a strong leader and that’s what we want.”
