Reports: Clark on trial with Stabaek

Ricardo Clark's stay in club purgatory could be nearing its end.

According to reports out of Norway, Clark is on trial with Stabaek IF — the parent club of current U.S. Under-23 and KAA Gent midfielder MIkkel Diskerud — with an eye on a loan deal that would afford him much-needed playing time once the Norwegian season begins in a month.

Clark played 45 minutes in a club friendly against Spanish side Deportiva Minera on Monday, and reports suggest that Stabaek is interested in going forward with a transaction if they can come to an agreement with Eintracht Frankfurt, where Clark is under contract until the end of the 2012-13 season.

Aside from one start for Eintracht Frankfurt at the beginning of this season, Clark has been relegated to reserve duties and has rarely made the matchday roster, let alone seen the field. He participated in the U.S. national team's January training camp and received playing time in friendlies against Venezuela and Panama, scoring the game-winning goal in stoppage time against the Vinotinto.

What do you think of this development? Think it would be a good move for Clark?
