Colorado Rapids star Powers continues Reading trial

English Championship club Reading have extended the trial of midfielder Dillon Powers.

The Colorado Rapids star has been with the Royals for the past few weeks and will now remain in Berkshire in a bid to win a contract this winter.

Reading boss Steve Clarke revealed to GetReading.co.uk that 24-year-old Powers will have his trial extended for at least one more week.

Clarke said: "Dillon has come over from the MLS and is working with us. He will stay with us for another week.

"The MLS is out of season as his team didn't qualify for the play-offs. So he's working with the rest of the group and I know he's enjoying it.

"But it will be a decision for January. It can't be done until then so we'll continue to look at Dillon in training. So far he's done well. He's a talented midfielder."

The 2013 MLS Rookie of the Year has made over 90 MLS regular season appearances for the Denver club since making his debut.
