Irish int'l Ronnie O'Brien rumoured to Dallas Burn

[Wasn't he supposed to the next best thing to hot buttered Guinness? It
seems he's outstayed his welcome in Serie A and the E/SPL, so now he might
be joining the MLS. In related news, ex-Fusion star Chacon is very unhappy
with the Revs, shame...]

Former Middlesbrough and Juventus midfielder Ronnie O'Brien is set to make a
move across the pond away from Dundee United to Major League Soccer and
specifically the Dallas Burn.

The 23-year old Irishman showed loads of promise early when 'Boro signed him
as an Irish junior-level international but after failing to impress after
two years O'Brien was off to Juventus.

He failed to catch on in Italy, however, but will surely be thrust into
action with his new club after impressing Burn coach Mike Jeffries in a
recent trial.

The Burn will have to cut one player from its roster once O'Brien's visa
comes through to stay within the 18-man limit.
