Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is on trial at Major League Soccer side Sporting Kansas City.
The former Arsenal player has been without a club since reaching a mutual agreement to terminate his contract with Russian side Ufa.

“Everything is always a trial. Everything is always a trial, always,” Vermes replied when asked if the 24-year-old was just training with the team on trial.
“We are trying to look at where he is now. I don’t care what the past was; it’s where he is now. We’re taking a look at him, just taking a look at him.”
Frimpong was seen as a great talent when he made Arsenal senior team debut in 2011 at age 19.
But he was later sent out on loan at sent on loan at Wolverhampton, Charlton and Fulham.
Frimpong joined Barnsley in 2014 but was released a few months later when the club was relegated.
