Sources: Juan Agudelo gets Wolverhampton Wanderers trial

Free agent Juan Agudelo has a trial with Wolverhampton Wanderers, sources say.

Juan Agudelo's journey to find a new club has resulted in him landing a training stint with English Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers, multiple sources have told ESPN FC.

Agudelo hasn't played a competitive match since his loan stint with Eredivisie side FC Utrecht ended in May. His contract with English Premier League side Stoke City was subsequently terminated by mutual consent when the player failed to secure a work permit for a second time.

Since then Agudelo's next destination has been the subject of much speculation. Sources confirmed to ESPN FC that MLS made an approach earlier in the summer, but Agudelo declined the offer to make him a young Designated Player, preferring to explore options in Europe.

A source with knowledge of the situation also stated that Bundesliga side Werder Bremen had made an offer, but Agudelo turned it down because he prefers to play in England.

Earlier this summer, Agudelo trained with Orlando City FC, who is set to begin its inaugural campaign in MLS in 2015.

The Washington Post reported on Sunday that Agudelo is pursuing a European Union passport by acquiring property in Cyprus. The Post also stated that New York City FC, who will also begin MLS play in 2015, have also expressed interest. But a league source stated that no approach has been made on behalf of the expansion club, and that any link between Agudelo and NYCFC was "not accurate."

In terms of Agudelo's relationship with Wolves, one source confirmed that the club views his stay in England as a trial as opposed to just a training stint. At present, Agudelo is free to train and participate in under-21 matches, and is scheduled to take part in Friday's match against Queens Park Rangers' Development Squad.

Because Agudelo isn't being paid by the club, his presence there doesn't qualify as work. Instead his trial is seen as an interview ahead of securing a move, allowing him to be in the country without a work permit.
