DUTCH striker Laurens Ten Heuvel has revealed he would jump at the opportunity to sign for Grimsby. The out-of-favour Blade has been placed on the transfer list by the Yorkshire club, and scored in his first outing for the Mariners in a week-long trial.

"Sheffield United put me on the transfer list, so I don't know what is going to happen. I want to be involved again. I just want to play and I'll see what happens at Grimsby."
