FC Dallas star Brek Shea does not expect he will join Arsenal permanently, despite training with the club during the MLS off season.

The 21-year-old forward is reportedly being courted by Manchester City and Manchester United, but Arsene Wenger has provided him with an opportunity to prove his worth.

The Arsenal boss confirmed last week that Shea would join up with the Gunners at London Colney to show what he is capable of.

Wenger is also understood to be keen to use Shea in the Arsenal reserve side, although it is unclear whether or not the terms of the agreement will allow that to happen.

Shea, meanwhile, is thankful for the chance provided to him by Arsenal, but does not see himself making a full-time move to the Emirates Stadium just yet.

"I got a call one day and was offered the chance to go and train during the break," Shea said, according to skysports.com.

"I thought it was cool and I accepted - it was as easy as that.

"Arsene Wenger said he wanted the best players even in training. This is a great opportunity for me even if it is only for a short while.

"I am very excited to train with players of great quality, some of which are the best in the world.

"Rubbing shoulders with them will obviously make me grow. I cannot wait.

"I am likely to stay with Dallas, though. I am still young and I have got a lot to learn before trying my luck in Europe."
