Stuart Holden is undoubtedly an up-and-coming player for the U.S. national team, but that apparently has not convinced English Premier League club Burnley enough to sign the now-free agent midfielder.
According to reports, Holden will go on trial with Burnley, although when the trial begins and for how long has not been revealed. Holden will train with the club and play in reserve games in order for Burnley to decide whether it wants to sign him.
While Holden's former club, the Houston Dynamo, has not given up hope on re-signing him, it will start to look at possible replacements, according to the club's chief operating officer, Chris Canetti.
What do you think of this development? Surprised Burnley is only offering a trial at this point? Should Holden just re-sign with Houston? Where should the Dynamo look for a replacement if Holden does leave?
