"That's why I'm here, to prove myself. Hopefully, everything goes well and we can sort it out," Tainio said. "I'm looking to sign for a few years here."
And Tainio revealed that he had been warned to expect a high standard of play in the USA after being so used to European football.
"People playing here told me I'd be surprised by the level. I'm pleased to see good players here," he added. "I played 14 years in Europe, so this is something new."
