Paddy McCourt would prefer a move to Major League Soccer according to his brother and agent Leroy.
"It is really just to keep his fitness up. Paddy knows the (Hibs) manager (Pat Fenlon) from their time at Derry," said Leroy McCourt.
"He has just been in today to have a look around and do a bit of training. It has always been his intention to go to America.
"It's 99 per cent nailed on that he will go over there. He doesn't want to uproot his family at this stage of the season there."
