Former US U-17 Junior Flores has a contract with Borussia Dortmund and he is looking to start his tenure with the club soon.
Sources told YA that Flores will be training at Borussia Dortmund through the Champions League final on May 25. Flores will attend the Finals as Dortmund take on Bayern Munich on May 25 at Wembley Stadium in London.
Flores, 17, will also train with Dortmund for long periods this summer and he is currently seeking approval to join the club full time in September which is six months before his 18th birthday.
Flores was a member of last month's US U-17 team that failed to qualify for the U-17 World Cup. At the beginning of the cycle he was a key member of the team but he gradually fell out of favor with head coach Richie Williams and saw only limited minutes in the ill-fated qualifying campaign.
