Hull City striker Caleb Folan has been given permission by English Championship outfit Hull City to travel to America for a week-long assessment, with a view to joining an MLS team ready for the start of the season next month.

Hull City gave permission for Folan to fly out to the States last week and early reports back from America are that a handful of clubs are impressed with what they have seen so far.

The 28-year-old has struggled for form after a number of injuries following his £1million move from Wigan Athletic back in August 2007, playing only two league games this season.

Hull City's Head of Football Operations Adam Pearson told skysports.com, "Caleb has struggled with injuries this season and with a couple of strikers arriving at the club in the last couple of months this opportunity came up.

"It's worth him having a look at it - we'll see what happens."
