Chris Birchall is set to return to Major League Soccer according to his Twitter page.

The 27-year old English-born Trinidad & Tobago international returned to the UK after his LA Galaxy deal finished at the end of last season in the hope of playing for former club Port Vale.

But the League Two outfit where hit with a transfer embargo forcing Birchall's hand and it appears as though he will be back in North America soon.

"Very hopeful that my deal back to @MLS will happen in the next few days!! My times at @LAGalaxy were the best but time for a new challenge!!" he posted.

It is unsure where Birchall will end up but some reports are suggesting he could be making his way to Galaxy's Los Angeles rivals Chivas USA.
