The much-travelled forward, 34, is out of contract at Turf Moor in the summer and has made just one league start this season. Clarets boss Owen Coyle said: "Ade is in negotiations with the MLS over a move to Houston and he would go there with our blessing. "He has been a magnificent professional and a great servant to Burnley Football Club. But he wants a change of lifestle and I would never stand in his way." Agent Gary Mellor added: "We're in negotiations with the MLS over a move and we are hopeful of reaching an agreement. "Ade will meet the Houston manager this weekend and we will take things from there."
