Leicester, West Brom target Movsisyan on MLS radar

Yura Movsisyan is being linked with a possible return to Major League Soccer.

The Spartak Moscow striker, 27, is believed to be open to a possible return to MLS where he spent time with Sporting Kansas City (then the Wizards) and Real Salt Lake between 2006 and 2009.

According to Movsisyan's agent, Patrick McCabe, the Armenia international is pondering a potential North America return.

"He's very interested in a return to the MLS," McCabe told the Salt Lake Tribune. "It would be a number of options I think he would have, but he's definitely open-minded at this point.

"If that's Salt Lake, OK, or another MLS team, he would certainly be open-minded to pursuing. We'll have to see what shakes out here within the next few weeks between his club and himself and the other teams that are interested."

Movsisyan, who joined Spartak from Kuban Krasnodar in 2012, has recently been linked with a £7million move to either Leicester City or West Bromwich Albion.
