Birmingham City are giving a trial to United States international midfielder Alejandro Bedoya.

The 23-year-old has spent the last two years with Swedish club Orebro SK.

Bedoya said: "I am very happy and grateful about this opportunity. It will increase my experience, motivation and confidence for the future."

He broke into the US senior team last season and, having made the preliminary 2010 World Cup squad, he has won seven caps.

"Hopefully I can prove I have the qualities to convince," he added.

"But most importantly it gives me a chance to see where I stand compared with some of the best players in the best league in the world."
