Philadelphia Union forward Cory Burke has reportedly been granted a visa that will enable him to return to the United States for preseason.

That bit of news is in a Jamaica Star article about Portmore United losing their first game without Burke, who scored 11 goals in 20 games while on loan with the Jamaica club.

Burke is quoted in the article saying that he will be finding out today when he is leaving.

“It’s the visa I was waiting [for], now everything has been sorted out,” he’s quoted saying in the article. “I picked up my passport and it’s just the date I’m waiting [for] to start preseasons with the club.”

Burke lost his visa back in May for undisclosed reasons after returning to his native Jamaica to complete his green card processing.

He missed the remainder of the season after making seven appearances and scoring a pair of goals in his second season with the first team after spending two seasons playing for the Bethlehem Steel.

The team declined to comment on the report or Burke’s international status.
