DR Congo-born Belgian striker Edouard Kabamba is on trial with MLS club Seattle Sounders.

The 24-year old Standard Liege man is being monitored at the pre-season training camp with the Sounders in the hope of winning a contract with the club.

Kabamba, who shares the same birthplace as Sounders stars Steve Zakuani and Blaise Nkufo, kicked off his professional career with Standard in 2007 after being involved with the youth academy since 2003.

He enjoyed a loan spell with Real Madrid Castilla - the Spanish giants' reserve setup - in the 2008/09 season and has since gone on loan to Belgian Second Division club Eupen.
