Former Scotland internationalist James McFadden is set to learn whether he has done enough to realise his American dream with Philadelphia Union.
The 32-year-old, who has been a free agent since leaving St Johnstone at the end of last season, has impressed Union manager Jim Curtin in training during the last three weeks.
Curtin now plans to hold talks with the 48-times capped former Motherwell, Everton, Birmingham City and Sunderland playmaker after Sunday’s final game of the season against Orlando City.
Curtin said: “We’ll sit down at the end of the year after Orlando and we’ll make some evaluation on that.
“He did a great job when he was in, did everything he could. I think he was fit, he played at his highest level possible and showed very well for himself.
“We had a good talk with him at the end and told him where we’re at in terms of our roster.
“Obviously, there’s no flexibility now to sign anyone. But, he did a good job in his short time here, everything he could, and we’ll have a discussion after the Orlando game with him about what makes sense moving forward.”
