Joe Public FC striker Kerry Baptiste is set to trial with MLS outfit Toronto FC following the completion of the Caribbean Club Championship in early May.

The 28-year old Trinidad & Tobago international confirmed the Reds had invited him for a trial and was excited ahead of his opportunity.

"Yes, I have been invited to go up to Toronto," he told the Trinidad Express. "They have expressed an interest having me train at the club and possibly they can offer me a deal, but everything will happen after the CFU Club Championship because right now Joe Public is my first preference.

"At the end of the day, even though I would like to benefit from playing overseas, Joe Public is responsible for where I am right now and I played some of the best football of my career as a member of the Joe Public club. If it means they must benefit from any deal that I sign outside, then I'm happy about that."

Baptiste has also been invited by English Championship outfit Ipswich Town for a trial during their pre-season.
