I thought this was worthy of its own thread. We knew Juventus had made an offer for Erik Palmer-Brown, and now it looks like a deal has been reached. Thanks to Scotty in the YA forum for the translation Here's the latest from Italian journalist Alfredo Pedullà (translated from Italian): Exclusive: Palmer-Brown and Juve, training stints expected Juventus’ deal for Erik Palmer-Brown, the 1997-born defender, will see them ‘parking’ the youngster with Sporting Kansas City until he reaches the age of eighteen. It is in Juve’s best interest that the teenager, considered to be very promising and already part of his country’s U-20 side, gain the necessary experience before arriving in Italy, and it’s a solution that also works out well for his U.S. club. The agreement, which will be signed after the January transfer market, will also see Palmer-Brown coming to Italy for various training stints in order to facilitate his settling in as he prepares to make the move permanently. It’s a solution has been studied in detail and one that satisfies everyone. http://www.alfredopedulla.com/articoli/37232-esclusiva-palmer-brown-juve-previsti-stage-in-italia So this is a Joseph Gyau/Charles Renken type of scenario. Juventus is puchasing Erik, but he can't move over there until he's 18. So Erik will train with SKC in the meantime. Seems like the kind of arrangement that could work nicely for other prospects like Haji Wright, etc.
