Former New England Revolution striker Sean Okoli is on trial with FC Cincinnati of USL, according to the club's Director of Communications D.J. Switzer.

The 23-year-old originally signed with the Revs on Jan. 19, 2015 after being acquired during a draft day trade with the Seattle Sounders. He appeared in five regular season games for the Revs, contributing a total of 46 minutes. Okoli also started in the club's 1-0 loss to the Charlotte Independence during the fourth round of the U.S. Open Cup.

Okoli was invited back for a second season with the Revolution and even spent time training with Portuguese affiliate Sporting CP during the off-season. He was ultimately waived on Feb. 9.

Okoli, a Sounders Homegrown, is now looking for his third club in as many years. A move to Cincinnati could be good for him as he'd likely get regular playing time. The team also has a number of MLS veterans, including Omar Cummings, Austin Berry, and Antoine Hoppenot. Cincinnati is coached by former US National Team captain John Harkes.

If Okoli joins Cincinnati, he wouldn't be the only former Revolution player on the roster as defender Tyler Polak signed with the club on Dec. 7, 2015.
