Arsenal midfielder Samuel Galindo has joined Colorado Rapids on trial.

The 21-year old Bolivian, who has been with the Gunners since 2010, will spend time with Denver outfit as he strives to win a MLS contract.

"Samuel is a talented young player that we're eager to take a look at in preseason," said Rapids Technical Director Paul Bravo.

"We know that his background with Arsenal has given him a solid foundation, and his experience with the youth and full national teams from his country is a boost for such a young player."

Since moving to Arsenal, Galindo has had loan spells with Salamanca, Gimnastic, Lugo and Jorge Wilstermann while representing the Bolivian national team on two occasions.
