Trinidad and Tobago midfielder Kevin Molino recently had a trial with Dutch club PSV Eindhoven.

The former National Under-20 and Under-17 player was at the club for a week, following another stint at Belgium club Zulte Waregem. He was expected back in Trinidad and Tobago yesterday.

Molino completed two seasons at Orlando City in the USL Pro Division, taking home the League's "Most Valuable " 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 Officer Shaun Fuentes. "It's been a good week for me. 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."

Molino said he wants to rejoin the national team in training, ahead of the Caribbean Cup qualifiers in Trinidad from November 14.

"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."

In related news, midfielder Khaleem Hyland, a former member of Waregem, said he's expected to be back playing in two weeks 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 was initially scheduled to join the T&T team in St Kitts for Caribbean Cup qualifying matches, before the injury setback ruled him out.
