A number of high-profile Estonian footballers have returned from trials at clubs abroad empty-handed.

Taavi Rähn, 74 caps for Estonia, has returned from Indonesia where he failed to earn a contract. The 33-year-old was cited as being too slow.

FC Levadia defender Artjom Artjunin also returned with no contract after a trial in a Norwegian top-league club. The young defender has six caps for Estonia.

Kaimar Saag (46 caps) is currently in Denmark and Igor Subbotin (one cap) in the Czech Republic showing their skills to potential employers.

Joel Lindpere (94 caps) has quit his Czech club FC Banik Ostrava, citing family reasons and injuries. Tarmo Kink (82 caps), once tipped for greatness, has returned to Estonia and is practicing with Levadia.

In more positive developments, national team striker Sergei Zenjov (35 caps) has ended his unsuccessful spell in England and is poised to sign a 2.5-year contract with Torpedo Moscow. The club has been home to a number of Estonian national team players, including Andres Oper.
