Former Armagh star Jamie Clarke has been training with the New York Red Bulls, according to reports.

The Irish News is reporting that Clarke (27) , who moved to New York in January to pursue a career in marketing, is training with the MLS alongside the likes of Shaun and Bradley Wright-Phillips.

Clarke has been playing for Longford GAA Club in New York this summer but is also known for being a skillful soccer player.

The diminutive forward returned from his travels last winter to help Crossmaglen secure an Ulster title and played in their All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Castlebar Mitchells.
