Houston Dynamo confirm Burnley trials for Holden

Houston Dynamo have confirmed Stuart Holden is joining Burnley for trials.

Houston Dynamo have confirmed Stuart Holden is joining Burnley for trials.

Dynamo chief operating officer Chris Canetti told FOX 26 Sports Holden has thrown a wrinkle into the plans that will certainly delay the situation even longer.

"Stuart is going on trial with Burnley, a club in the English Premier League," said Canetti. "What that means is he will train with Burnley and play in some of their reserve games and the team will then decide if it wants to sign Stuart."

Canetti said this doesn't mean the Dynamo and Holden are going their separate ways, but it does mean the Dynamo must start getting its roster ready for next year, regardless of what Holden decides to do.

"We want to sign Stuart," Canetti said. "That hasn't changed.

"We haven't looked at alternatives yet. Now that he is going to Burnley it is imperative that we take a hard look at potential replacements should he decide to leave the Dynamo."
