JAMIE HILL - Friday, November 4, 2011
FC Dallas announced on Thursday that US national team winger Brek Shea would spend a month training with Arsenal following the November international friendlies.
The 21-year-old has enjoyed a breakout season in MLS this year, leading his team with 11 goals. Shea's improvement has led to new opportunities with the national team, where he has played a prominent role in the friendlies following the summer's Gold Cup.
Shea recently signed a multi-year extension with MLS this past May. Despite that, rumors of interest from European clubs have persisted.
Following his training stint, Shea will return to Dallas in December. While interest in the midfielder has been high, a transfer to the Gunners is not expected.
