DALBY TOUR ENDS IN BELGIUM
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
CHAD WINGER - Wednesday, September 5, 2007
Former US Under-20 captain Greg Dalby and his whirlwind tour around Europe has finally come to an end, as the midfielder has signed a potential three-year deal with Belgium club Charleroi.

"[Dalby] signed a one-year deal with a further two option years," Dalby agent Lyle Yorks confirmed to YA. "He is very excited to to begin his professional career in a strong league like Belgium and a top club like Charleroi."

"We have strong connections throughout Europe, and we felt that they would be a good fit so we placed him on trial there."

Dalby, 21, had a deal in place to join Preston North End earlier this summer, but the Home Office's denial of ex-Notre Dame Fighting Irish's work permit application saw the move called off.

The California native, who was named "High School Player of the Year" in 2002, also had brief trials with Scottish club Celtic, Serie A team Siena and German meddlers FC Nuremberg.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
