Now 28 years old, Joseph Ngwenya realizes his chances to make it big in Europe aren't as great as they once were.

A former striker for the Los Angeles Galaxy, Columbus Crew and Houston Dynamo, Ngwenya has been floating around Europe since early in 2008 and has since realized his home is in MLS.

"We're in discussions with MLS right now," said his representative Patrick McCabe. "We hope to have it all resolved in the next few days."

Following his departure from MLS after the 2007 season, Ngwenya signed with SK Austria Karnten, but only saw the field once. His contract with Karnten was disolved last summer and he went on trial with Bayern Munich but didn't stuck with the German giants.

He then signed with Turkish club Antalyaspor, but only played three times, scoring once. A return to MLS seems all but sealed following the comments from his representative.

One positive from his venture to Europe was he was able to win his first cap for his native Zimbabwe in 2008, and has received four more since.
