JOSH Wright could be heading to America to play Major League Soccer.

NewsAtDen can reveal that the Millwall midfielder has been invited state-side by Chicago Fire for a trial, which could take place as early as next week.

Wright is currently training with Leyton Orient after cutting-short a loan spell with Crawley Town, where he made just two starts.

Chicago's season is about to end so Wright may stay in England until the New Year before heading out to Illinois for pre-season training.

His father and agent, Mark, revealed: "Josh could to go to Chicago in the next couple of days – we've had a meeting with them and they are very keen to have him out there.

"But we've got to weigh up the pros and cons of going now or in February when it is their pre-season.

"Chicago are looking for players with Josh's CV – he's 24, has played over 100 Championship games and he's coming out of contract. They want players that are hungry.

"American clubs are changing their strategy because lots of players have gone there at the end of their careers for one last payday.

"Now they want someone who will build their career and prove their worth.

"But Josh could have a good three or four months in England playing on loan somewhere so that's why it might be a risk going out to Chicago now."

Meanwhile, former Tottenham, West Ham and Stoke City midfielder Matthew Etherington has started training with the Lions with a view to earning a contract.

Ian Holloway said of the 33-year-old, who is a free agent: "It does you no harm to have a look, especially when someone really wants to come in and keeps asking if they can train.

"I really like that about Etherington.”

    Good move for Wright and sounds like Etherington's attitude is good.

    Like I said in previous posts pay as you play with mom, goal and assist bonuses for Etherington if Ollie does sign him then how can we lose out. Good luck to Wright tried his best but not good enough for the championship imo. Any news on Pope we need a target man who can score goals Pope is 6,3 and has been on fire recently. I really do think he would compliment Lee Gregory, would be a shame if we don't go for him. NOLU WDC.

      @bobthelion: Good point about the money. I would much rather Pope than Etherington but why cant we sell a couple of players who Ollie seems to have no intention of playing for example Shituu, Marquis, Wright. Let Ranegie go if he will be out long term. None of us know what his fitness level is like apart from the guys behind the scenes we'll just have to trust Ollie. Also what is going on with Martinez has he even played a reserve game or U21 yet?

          @Jim28: Typical, maybe they should stick him in the new ice bath and keep him there for a week.

    edwards is a one off, not sure he will be the same when he returns but what can etherington give us, he will take time to get fit and spend most of the time on the treatment table

    I have a question to ask? If Josh came back from Crawley Town, why is he training at Leyton? Has there been a bust up at the ground that Ollie doesn't want him involved with the rest of the squad?

    No to both of them why not try out Fred on the wings in replace for etherington and Powell has replaced wright. Also a player for millwall to keep tabs on is James Maddison 17 from Coventry.
