Jamaica international midfielder Lovel Palmer is still awaiting his visa so he can officially join MLS club Houston Dynamo.

The 25-year old has been acquired by the Dynamo on an international transfer but has not yet received his working visa which forced him to miss the season opener against FC Dallas which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Dynamo coach Dominic Kinnear was confident that Palmer would be free to play for the club soon but said it was just a case of getting the paperwork finalised.

"It's all about paperwork," he said.
