Arsenal goalkeeper James Shea is training with Major League Soccer side Colorado Rapids.

The 21-year-old, who had a loan spell at League Two side Dagenham & Redbridge last season, has made six appearances for Arsenal Under-21s this campaign, and was named on the bench for the UEFA Champions League group-stage games against Montpellier, Olympiacos and the double-header with Schalke.

The Islington-born stopper also starred in the FA Youth Cup-winning side of 2009, alongside first-team players Jack Wilshere and Francis Coquelin.
