Trinidad and Tobago midfielder Densill Theobald has turned down a trial and possible contract with MLS club San Jose Earthquakes.

Theobald gave preference to staying at home to prepare under head coach Russell Latapy for the upcoming 2010 World Cup Qualifier against Costa Rica.

The Trinidad Express reported that Theobald was invited for training with San Jose last week and it appears that a deal was set to be offered, with the MLS club's head coach Frank Yallop indicating they were in quick need of a midfielder.

"They wanted me to come last week but, to me, I felt it wasn't the right timing to go over to a club before these two games we have coming up against Costa Rica and Mexico," Theobald told Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) media officer Shaun Fuentes.
