Dom Dwyer could be going home, but he’s backtracking from a weekend report that said a January loan deal to the Championship is imminent.
The England native who won an MLS Cup with Sporting KC last week and scored 13 times in 15 matches for Orlando City FC played coy over his future with MLSSoccer.com on Tuesday but lamented some things about being a youngster in MLS earlier on Sunday.
Dwyer lavished praise on the MLS experience but also mentioned how odd it was to not have a choice where he was going to live after signing a Generation Adidas contract. After going on trial with St. Mirren of the SPL and not earning a contract last offseason, could he be headed back across the Atlantic? From The Telegraph:
“Dwyer said that he is set to move to an unnamed Sky Bet Championship club on loan in January with the possibility of a permanent transfer. If it happens, he will travel back across the Atlantic as a champion – just like Beckham.”
His report with Steve Brisendine was vague on potential destination details.
“They’re both – all of them are good clubs. I don’t know exactly what’s going on yet. I just have to wait and see.”
The Norwich City youth still has plenty to prove in the US despite titles at MLS, USL-PRO and the NJCAA (where he won two with Tyler Junior College). The allure of home may just be too much for the striker, who scored twice in 17 appearances for Sporting KC across two seasons.
It also read that he was a bit stung by not making Peter Vermes squad out of training camp, though he admits his ride was fun.
“Unbelievable. From coming in to pre-season and being told I was not good enough right now, to being a key part of the team, to the final …”
