Soccer Insider reports that US U-20 starlet Dilly Duka has signed with MLS. Duka was exploring options in Europe, but has opted to enter the MLS draft this winter. A product of the Red Bulls academy, he has made it known that he hopes to end up in New Jersey. Seems likely, as Red Bull New York Red Bulls have the second overall pick.
As much as I like to see our top youngsters head over to Europe at an early age, I think it’s great that MLS is able to land some promising young Americans. It’s an option that seems to really work for a lot of players.
