New York Red Bulls defender Connor Lade will soon be joining the list of young American players who will spend some time abroad this offseason.
Lade is expected to join Spanish club Sevilla FC for a training stint that runs from Dec. 13-23, the Red Bulls announced on Monday. Lade is the first player from the Red Bulls to have an announced training stint abroad this winter, but he joins nearly a dozen others from around MLS that have, will or are partaking in similar European training visits.
The Red Bulls also announced Monday that Lade and fellow defender Brandon Barklage were signed to new contracts. Terms of the deals were not disclosed, per club and league policy.
What do you think of Lade training with Sevilla FC? Happy to see him and Barklage signing new contracts?
