Former US basketball star Dennis Rodman arrived in Pyongyang on Thursday for a third visit to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, saying the purpose of his trip is to train the country's players.

Rodman, accompanied by a documentary crew, is expected to help train the DPRK basketball team for an exhibition match on Jan 8 in Pyongyang to mark the birthday of top leader Kim Jong-un. The five-day trip has been organized by Irish bookmakers Paddy Power.

"We will talk about the schedule in detail while meeting Rodman in person. A city tour may also be chosen by him," a Sports Ministry source told Xinhua News Agency at the airport.

The source confirmed that the ministry will also make a detailed plan for the exhibition match between the DPRK team and former players from the National Basketball Association in North America.
