Fortune poised to join Brescia

Quinton Fortune
Fortune has been without a club since leaving Bolton last year

Former South Africa international Quinton Fortune is on the verge of joining Italian Serie B side Brescia.

The 31-year-old will undergo a medical at the Italian outfit before signing a contract, the club confirmed.

The former Manchester United midfielder has been a free agent since leaving Bolton last year after an unsuccessful stint at the club.

He left Old Trafford for the Reebok Stadium in 2006 after seven years at the club.

After departing Bolton following just six appearances, Fortune had a series of failed trials at Blackburn, Sunderland and Sheffield United.

He will train with Brescia and could sign for the Italian second division side in the next few days, the club said on its website.

Brescia currently lie ninth in Serie B after seven games.
