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.”
