Still catching up on life right now, but a couple links from the last couple days.

Steven Goff tweeted the other day that Odense U-17 winger Sebastian Clark is going to trial at Fulham according to Clark’s dad. Clark holds US and Denmark passports as he was born in Atlanta, but grew up in Denmark. So he is one player to keep an eye on.
Speaking of Odense, Greg Seltzer has heard that the Danish club might put in a January offer for San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski.
One player who will not be playing in Europe in the near future is U-23 midfielder Kelyn Rowe. Rowe, who spent some time last year traveling Europe trialing/training with various clubs, has signed a Generation Adidas deal with MLS.
