Dundee United have brought MLS midfielder Dillon Powers to the club for a trial with a view to signing him this month, Courier Sport can reveal.
The 28-year-old Texan has been released by Orlando City where he struggled for game-time.
Capped by the USA at under-18 and under-20 level, Powers was more successful in his four years with Colorado Rapids. He was the MLS Rookie of the Year in 2013.
United sporting director Tony Asghar, who recruited Ian Harkes from the States a year ago, said: “Dillon has come over for us to assess his fitness and for him to assess Dundee United.
“He is the type of player who we feel could enhance our squad but nothing has been agreed yet.”
