According to a report out of Trinidad and Tobago, Philadelphia Union midfielder Keon Daniel has not been able to re-enter the USA since playing for the country's national team against Bermuda and Barbados.

Ten days after representing Trinidad and Tobago in World Cup qualifiers against Bermuda and Barbados, United States-based Philadelphia Union midfielder Keon Daniel is still in Trinidad.

The player is having visa issues and not allowed re-entry into the USA to rejoin his Major League Soccer (MLS) club.

A worker with a private company that works extensively with US Citizenship and Immigration Services, talked to the Brotherly Game about what Daniel is possibly facing in his visa situation

"Assuming no violations, 15-30 days, though MLS probably has enough pull to cut that down. If a correction, USCIS has 30 days to rule."

The report also denied an article yesterday that said that the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation might need to intervene on Daniels behalf.

Contacted yesterday, a TTFF source said: "The club is sorting it out. They do not require the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) to do anything. Their attorneys are handling the matter."
