BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, February 20, 2012
Over the weekend Blackburn fullback Adam Henley admitted that he is undecided on his international future and playing for the USA is possible

In a BBC interview Henley said that while he has played for Wales U-19 team in official youth competitions, filing for a one-time switch to either the United States or England is possible.

At the moment, he prefers not to be tied to any country.

Henley was born in Tennessee and is the son of an American father and a Welsh mother. When he was a young child, he moved to England.

Henley has already been promoted to Blackburn's first team despite only being 17 years old. He is the youngest player to play in the Premier League this year and is a top prospect. He has played at both right back and left back but he has indicated that right back is his natural position.

Would be great, but face it, he will be guaranteed the MOST playing time at Wales.

Of course if he switches to the US, he will probably get to play in a World Cup, but he will always be competing with Chandler, Lichaj and others...

But if he thinks he has the chops......

Wales or the US are likely. England isn't--even as talented as he is, he'll know the odds of breaking into England's national team and playing more than once or twice.

I agree, as gary said, you can never have too many good defenders...... I would say that the USMNT is in dire need of good defenders! Getting Henley would be exciting to say the least, with his experience in a top flight league at a young age and many years ahead of him hopefully. Go get him Klinsy!

Not pinging my hopes on him switching to the U.S. If he decides to represent the U.S. then I will be happy otherwise this is a non story.

Sounds like he would be a good get for the US. Klinsman should already have been on the phone with this young man. You can never have too many good defenders.
