Americans on Trial

The posts are few and far between, but it seems that it’s only when there are American players involved does this site get updated.  Nonetheless, Graham Zusi and Juan Agudelo are reportedly training with West Ham this week.  Whether these are trials looking at potential transfers or just training sessions are a matter of debate, but it should be noted that another MLS’er in Osvaldo Alonso just completed a similar week-long trial.  Intriguing, but the reality is that Zusi just recently signed a new contract with Kansas City and Agudelo also just completed a trial in November with Celtic.  Any hopes of permanent transfers seem to be long-shots at best, but the situation bears watching.  The only current Americans on the squad are youngsters Danny Potts and Sebastian Lletget, so having a more prominent national team player would bring more exposure for the club in the United States.
