Ex-Barcelona B winger Calvo linked with MLS

Aris Thessaloniki winger Toni Calvo could be on his way to MLS according to a recent report on Greek site MetroSport.

The 24-year old former Barcelona B man, who had a loan spell with Italian club Parma last season, is likely to depart Aris this summer and is tipped to make his way to North Armerica.

A translated excerpt of the article suggests the following: 'Tony Calvo's last week in Thessaloniki. A few days he ago met with the administration of the club and specifically (Aris FC chairman) Thanasis Athanasiadis, where they had a chat about his future.

'As is known, the 24-year old knew from the outset that he is not rated highly by (Aris FC manager) Sakis Tsiolis and it was for this reason that his future and the potential to be re-loaned was discussed directly with the Aris strong man. It was then that he was informed of a number of other clubs who sought to incorporate his potential.

'So yesterday, the young midfielder went back to the offices at Kleanthis Vikelidis Stadium and was told that the team has a serious proposal by a team of MLS and Aris will agree that the Spaniard can continue his career in the American league. More developments on the subject, as to whether a transfer fee will be involved or he becomes free, will be known in a week.'
