The Scottish Football Association are in discussions over an away friendly against the United States of America in May.

STV understands talks have taken place over the possibility of Craig Levein’s side travelling to take on Jurgen Klinsmann’s team, which would take place on a date between May 27 and 29.

Plans have not yet been finalised between the two nations. Talks have also taken place between the Scottish FA and a number of European national associations over a fixture, with an announcement expected later this week.

Scotland last faced USA in a Hampden friendly back in 2005, with Andy Webster and Josh Wolff scoring in a 1-1 draw.

The national side’s last trip to the States came before World Cup 1998, with the two sides playing out a 0-0 draw in Washington.

USA have won two out of three of the other encounters between the two nations, with Scotland’s only win coming in a 6-0 victory in 1952.
