Former Huddersfield Town trialist Sean St Ledger is hoping to win a Major League Soccer contract in the USA.
The ex-Republic of Ireland international featured in the pre-season friendly against Newcastle United.
But the centre-back’s hopes of a John Smith’s Stadium deal hit the rocks when manager Mark Robins departed in August.
Town ended up signing Mark Hudson from Cardiff City.
That left 37-times capped St Ledger, a free agent after leaving Leicester City, still looking for a club.
The Solihull-born 29-year-old started out at Peterborough United.
He also played for Preston North End before moving to Leicester in 2011.
St Ledger, who has played more than 350 games at club level, said: “It feels like I’ve finished football.
“It’s been the weirdest feeling ever. I’ve found this period really lonely.
“I still 100 per cent want to try and get a club.
“It’s not been too great so far but you have to see the positive side of things.
“Hopefully, if I can go to America in January, that would be great.”
