Leeds Utd helping soccer in America

American striker Mike Grella has signed a contract with Leeds United. This could be excellent news for the American National team as well as Toronto FC.

Leeds has a brilliant track record with young players with the likes of Harry Kewell, Alan Smith, Jonathan Woodgate, Aaron Lennon, James Milner and now Fabian Delph coming through their Thorpe Arch Academy.

Grella has already impressed by scoring a hat trick for the reserves.

According to reports, the 22-year-old was already being monitored by a number of English scouts.

Toronto FC picked up Grella’s rights in the draft, so if he returns to the USA, Grella’s Major League Soccer rights are held by the Canadian team.

Grella has represented the U.S. at both under-18 and under-20 level. He played college soccer for Duke University.
