The club, 12 de Octobre, is seeking approval from Cabanas' doctors and will eventually contact the Mexican club America about a transfer.

Cabanas was playing with America when he was shot on Jan. 25, 2010, in a bar in an upscale neighborhood in the Mexican capital. A bullet fragment remains in his skull because doctors decided it was too risky to remove.

As part of his therapy, the 31-year-old player has trained with the national team, but few expected him to return to competition.
