CHAD WINGER - Monday, June 14, 2004
AGF Aarhus has granted injury plagued defender Wade Barrett permission to go on a week long trial with Norwegian team Fredrikstad, current employer of fellow American Brian West.

"Wade has asked us for this opportunity, and we won't put any hindrances in the way of his attempt to get a new contract in a new club," Aarhus' Bo Jensen told YA. "The players in AGF should feel that the club also thinks about their interests."

The former San Jose Earthquake joined Århus shortly after the 2002 season.

After a strong start, recurring injuries have plagued Barrett's Danish career. Starting only a handful of matches since the winter break, he's yet to find a permanent place under new head coach Sören Åkeby.

Aarhus has not decided whether they will release Barrett from his contract which runs until June of 2005 or ask a transfer fee should Fredrikstad be impressed by the trial, but Jensen would not comment further.

The soonest Barrett could join Fredrikstad would be July 1.
