Leeds striker Mike Grella has been given permission to train with American side New York Cosmos.
The 24-year-old joined the Whites in 2008 but has failed to earn a concerted run in the team over the last three years, scoring five goals in 42 appearances.
Grella was loaned out of Elland Road last season and enjoyed productive spells at Carlisle and Swindon Town.
The New York-born forward is thought to have interested a number of English sides but has opted to return to America to train with the Cosmos.
Grella is expected to leave the Championship outfit after chairman Ken Bates announced he was transfer listed in May.
