All Whites midfielder Tim Payne is on trial at Major League Soccer club Toronto FC.
A report from The Canadian Press news agency said Payne, who is contracted by English club Blackburn, was "in camp" at Toronto.
He will come under scrutiny from Toronto coach Ryan Nelsen, the former All Whites captain.
Payne, 20, is currently in the All Whites squad and played in the loss to Japan in Tokyo last month.
He is a regular member of the Blackburn under-21 side after moving to England in 2012.
Auckland-born Payne started his career with short stints at both Auckland City and Waitakere United in the New Zealand National League.
Toronto currently sit 4th in the Eastern Conference winning two of three games this season.
