Holden offered tryout at Burnley
[AMERICANS ABROAD] U.S. international Stuart Holden will head to English Premier League club Burnley for a tryout, Dynamo chief operating officer Chris Canetti told FOX 26 Sports.
But his prospects of signing were complicated by the news that Burnley manager Owen Coyle is the top choice to become the new Bolton Wanderers manager.
Coyle invited Holden to come to Burnley this week and discuss a move to the Clarets. Holden is expected to work out with the club.
Holden also attracted the interest of Rangers and Aberdeen in his native Scotland and Burnley rival Blackburn and has an offer to remain in MLS with the Houston Dynamo.
Holden's status as a free agent and his British passport make him an attractive player to clubs in Britain.
