Chicago Fire coach Frank Yallop hopes to sign Tottenham midfielder Grant Ward.

The 19 year-old has spent two weeks trialling with the MLS club.

"He had a wonderful two weeks with us," Yallop told reporters on a conference call. "We'd love to be able to keep him, but it's obviously up to Tottenham. We have a great relationship with them. I feel like we can get that done, but at the same time, you never know. ...

"Grant's very committed to coming back and working this out. He's done well enough that we're in that spot. We'll see how it goes. I won't put a percentage on it, but I'm hoping that it works out and we have Grant available for us because he's a good young player."
