#11 - Kevin Molino Trinidad and Tobago midfielder Kevin Molino is currently on trial with Dutch Eredivisie club PSV Eindhoven.

The former National Under 20 and Under 17 player has been at the club for the past week following another stint at Belgium club Zulte Waregem.

Molino completed two seasons at Orlando City in the USL Pro Division, taking home the League’s “Most Valuable Player “ award for the 2012 season.

Now he’s focused on continuing his career in Europe.

“It’s definitely something I want to accomplish at least before the end of the current season,” Molino told TTFF Media after spending the past few days at the club of which Dutchman Dick Advocaat is the manager

“It’s been a good week for me so far at PSV. The opportunity to train here with the first team players is massive for me. I’ve always wanted to be part of the stage here in Europe.

Hopefully things will go well. Nothing is a done deal here but I’ve been working hard and who knows what will happen in the weeks to come,” added the ex-Under 23 team member.

Molino is expected back in Trinidad on Monday and wants to rejoin the national team in training ahead of the Caribbean Cup qualifiers in Trinidad from November 14th.

“I’m back home from Monday because my European (Schengen) visa will be up by this weekend. I’m definitely hoping to get back into the national team. I was happy to see the boys get out of the last group stage. Hopefully we can continue to get better as a squad and progress into the finals and then challenge for the Cup,” he added.

In related news, midfielder Khaleem Hyland, a former member of Waregem, said he’s expected to be back playing in two weeks time after suffering a hamstring strain for Racing Genk earlier this month in the warm up for a Europa League fixture in Switzerland.

“In two weeks I should be back in full training and playing again. It was disappointing to pick up the injury just before the game but these things happen and you’ve got to deal with it. The medical staff has been looking after me and trying to ensure I’m in proper shape again for the rest of the season,” Hyland said.

He was initially scheduled to join the T&T team in St Kitts for the last phase of the Caribbean Cup qualifiers before the injury setback ruled him out.
