LA Galaxy skipper 'impressed' by ex-PSV, Leeds Utd midfielder Vayrynen

Robbie Keane admits Mika Vayrynen has made an impression during his trial with LA Galaxy.

The 33-year old Finnish midfielder recently travelled to Dublin with the MLS Cup winners as part of their 2015 season preparations and starred in friendlies against Hammarby and Shamrock Rovers.

Of HJK Helsinki veteran Vayrynen, whose previous clubs include Heerenveen, PSV Eindhoven and Leeds United, Keane said: "I was impressed by him. He's technically very, very good."

Additionally, Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena indicated that perhaps Vayrynen could join the squad for further trials in California after initially linking up in Europe.

"It's possible," Arena said. "We haven't finalized anything yet."
