MLS powerbrokers have been scouting talent in the Caribbean for the past this week.

Houston Dynamo's head coach, Dominic Kinnear and San Jose Earthquake's general manager, John Doyle, touched down in Kingston, Jamaica last week.

"I just wanted to see the talent on show. There have been a lot of successful Caribbean players in the MLS. Hopefully I'll see someone. If they are good, we will sign them," Kinnear told the Jamaica Observer.

Doyle said while he was keeping a close eye on Trinidadian forward Cornell Glen who had played in the MLS before for three different clubs, he was also scouting for new talent.

"We currently have two Caribbean players: Scott Sealy from Trinidad and Ryan Johnson from Jamaica so I am aware of the talent in the Caribbean," said the former US defender.

"I came specifically to see Trinidad's Cornell Glen who has played in the MLS before and I wanted to see how he's playing now. I am also hoping to discover some fresh talent for MLS."
