Newcastle's Alan Smith could be on his way to the US after Orlando City revealed their interest.
The 30-year-old is in the final year of his contract at St James' Park and has been told he is unlikely to be offered a new deal.
Smith is a firm fans' favourite at Newcastle for his indefatigable work rate and his tenacious tackling, but he has hinted he could be prepared for a fresh challenge abroad.
The former England international recently admitted to the local media in Orlando just how much he enjoys spending time there.
And that is something Adrian Heath - the manager of Orlando - is keen to exploit in an attempt to entice the Yorkshire-born star across the Atlantic.
"I'd love to take Alan over here at some point," he told The Journal.
"We have spoken a couple of times so far and it seems at the moment he wants to sit out the last year of his contract at Newcastle.
"So I may have to wait but if anything changes, he can come to Orlando whenever he wants.
"I know he'd like it here and I'd love to sign him."
