Reggae Boy Junior Flemming said he has had several offers from Major League clubs as he ponders his move ahead of the new United States Soccer League (USL) season.

Flemming, who plies his trade for New York Red Bulls II, told STAR Sports he will be making a decision on his future soon.

"I have other interests from clubs that have been reaching out to me. It is going to be really interesting which team I go to next or if I make the jump to the Red Bulls first team," said Flemming, a former Tivoli Gardens striker.

"At this stage, I just want to continue to train good, train hard and keep putting in the work. The results will speak for itself," Flemming said.

The 21-year-old, who has been plagued with injuries since signing with the Red Bulls in March 2016, netted 10 goals this season.

'IT WAS A BIG THING'

"I think, personally, this season was a high for me, because I was coming off two meniscus-tear surgeries. Being out for eight-plus months, recovering and scoring 10 goals, I think it was a big thing," Flemming said.

"I am at a point in my career where I am really peaking because I am playing some good football and I think that the off season is going to be really interesting, training and things like that, so I just have to ensure I keep in shape.

"I have fully recovered from the surgeries. These kind of surgeries normally take up to one year to heal, but I think that it was really good that I recovered quickly and be back on peak form by scoring 10 goals," he added.
