The Jordan Morris
sweepstakes has come to an end. On Tuesday, Werder Bremen general manager Thomas Eichin
issued a statement that the young U.S. international, who spent the last week
training with the Bundesliga club in Turkey, will be returning to the United States, presumably to sign a Homegrown Player contract with MLS's Seattle Sounders.
"The player has made it
clear after intensive discussions that he currently sees its future in America," said
Eichin. "This decision, we respect, of course. We are
in a situation where we need players who completely identify with Werder and the way here and can fully focus on the task."
Werder, which resumes the German season on Sunday after the
winter break, faces a relegation battle.
