Two leading Indian players could soon feature in Major League Soccer after they signed up with a United States-based FIFA-registered agent, the Times of India newspaper reported on Monday.

Sunil Chhetri and Steven Dias have been handed contracts by agent Eddie Rock, the newspaper said.

"I signed up on Friday night," Dias told the newspaper. "The agent will now initiate talks with my club and, hopefully, it will pave the way for me to play in the US. I am excited about the possibilities," the midfielder added.
