MLS club Vancouver Whitecaps have brought in Cian Hughton on a 10-day trial.

The 22-year old English-born Republic of Ireland U21 international, who is the son of former Newcastle United manager Chris Hughton, has been invited to Vancouver by Whitecaps chief executive Paul Barber.

Hughton is an attacking defender who spent the past two seasons with English League Two side Lincoln City but was released when they were relegated to the Conference.
