USMNT Hyndman stays put at Fulham, will have trials to determine next home

1 Comment

Frustrated at Fulham, American teen Emerson Hyndman looks set to stay at Craven Cottage through the final year of his contract.

There was some thought that Fulham would sell the 19-year-old by Tuesday’s summer transfer deadline, having seen the player reject a pair of new contract offers.

This comes on reports of “interest from around Europe” to acquire the midfielder. Instead, Hyndman will scout out prospective new homes over the course of this season.

From MLSSoccer.com:

A source close to the situation divulged on Tuesday afternoon that the 19-year-old will be allowed to leave Craven Cottage for training-only stints with prospective buyers as the Championship season unfolds. It is in this manner that he can choose his next employer.

Hyndman, the grandson of former FC Dallas boss Schellas Hyndman, has been capped once by the USMNT and is a veteran of the U-20 World Cup. He’s made 11 appearances with Fulham’s first team, and is currently on U-23 duty with the States.
