Wales striker Robert Earnshaw says there is "nothing definite in place" after his first day on trial with Major League Soccer side Vancouver Whitecaps.

The former Cardiff City player is a free agent after a spell with Chicago Fire in the MLS last season.

Earnshaw, 33, has ruled out a return to Chicago and is now on trial in Canada.

"It's an opportunity for me to come in and train and see how it goes," he said.

"There's nothing that's definite. I guess we'll sit down in the next couple of weeks or so."

Earnshaw, who has won 58 caps for Wales, has been reunited with former international team mate Carl Robinson at Vancouver.

Former Wolverhampton and Sunderland midfielder Robinson was appointed Whitecaps head coach in December 2013.

"I've only got positive things to say about him," Earnshaw added.

"It's different to see him as a coach but I could see, even when he was playing, that he had that mentality of what he wants to do and that leadership.

"He's going to improve as a coach."
