The Vancouver Whitecaps have sent teenage midfielder Simon Colyn on a 10-day training stint with Dutch club PSV Eindhoven. Sources are telling MLSsoccer.com that both sides are looking to reach an agreement that could potentially include an option to buy.
Colyn signed with the Whitecaps in 2018 on a homegrown contact and made his MLS debut on the final day of the regular season – officially becoming the second-youngest player in Vancouver’s MLS history.
He was also the 15th youngest player to earn an MLS contract in league history.
The young midfielder has seen caps with the Canadian youth teams – including during the U17 CONCACAF Championship.
The footballing powerhouse, PSV, currently sit third in the table and have Richie Ledezma and Chris Gloster both playing in their reserve squads. The American connection will likely help Colyn adjust to the move if it should become permanent.
