Former Southampton and Crystal Palace midfielder Leandre Griffit is trialling with Houston Dynamo.

Griffit is joined at Dynamo by fellow French midfielder Khadim Diouf and Nigerian Blessing Kaku, who are all chasing MLS contracts.

"I know this is a really good team in America, so I'm really glad to be with them," Griffit told "Football in Europe sometimes goes more slowly; we keep the ball a little bit more. Here, it's my first day, so I didn't know what to expect."
