Norwegian club Valerenga have confirmed that American striker Chad Barrett is on trial with them.

The 27-year old LA Galaxy attacker has decided to try his luck with the Tippeligaen outfit with manager Martin Andresen revealing the club is looking for reinforcements up front.

"We look for opportunities to enhance our offensive against the fall season. We have some good reports on Chad and he wished himself to come to Norway to show off," Andresen told

"That's why he comes here this week to train with us. Then we saw him in our environment so we can make an even more thorough assessment of him as to whether we want to tie ourselves to him."

Barrett joined the Galaxy from Toronto FC last year after a couple of years in Canada following a three-year stint with Chicago Fire.
