MLS Notes: Impact talk with Seedorf's agent, Peterlin on trial with 'Caps & more

The Montreal Impact have already secured one Designated Player, and it appears that they might not be stopping there.

On the heels of signing Bologna striker Marco Di Vaio, the club confirmed that sporting director Nick de Santis has been in talks with the agent for Dutch great and former AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf. According to the club's official Twitter account, De Santis and Seedorf's agent talked money, but no official offer was made. 

Seedorf, 36, is coming off a season in which he appeared 29 times for AC Milan, including eight games in the UEFA Champions League. Still capable of playing a high level, the out-of-contract Seedorf has been mulling his future options, with retirement reportedly not being one of them.

Here are a few more items from around MLS:


Former Everton, Plymouth Argyle and Walsall midfielder Anton Peterlin is on trial with the Vancouver Whitecaps, the club announced on Tuesday.

Peterlin, who made the leap from Ventura County Fusion to Everton after a trial in 2009 will be with the Whitecaps for the next week and could potentially provide a boost to the club's midfield. The Whitecaps will already be receiving some midfield help upon the opening of the summer transfer window, when former Middlesbrough midfielder and Designated Player signing Barry Robson joins the club.

Peterlin, who never appeared in a first-team game during his time at Everton, played in 31 games across all competitions for Walsall this past season.


The Impact are in the midst of adding high-priced talent, but they are also adding from within. The club signed the first Homegrown Player in franchise history, inking Quebec native and defender Karl W. Ouimette to a professional deal.

Ouimette, 19, has been the club's U-21 captain since last year.


Houston Dynamo defender Jermaine Taylor has been called in for Jamaica's second World Cup qualifier, which is against Antigua and Barbuda on June 12. As a result, he'll miss the Dynamo's league match against the Whitecaps on Sunday, leaving the club even more shorthanded across the back line. 

Starters Geoff Cameron (USA) and Andre Hainault (Canada) are already gone on international duty, leaving the Dynamo with Corey Ashe, Bobby Boswell and a host of reserves available for selection. Rookie Warren Creavalle, who has yet to make his pro debut, could wind up starting alongside Boswell in central defense.


What do you think of Seedorf potentially signing with Montreal? Think Peterlin would be a good addition in Vancouver? Do you like how Montreal is building its roster? How do you think the Dynamo will fare with so many defenders on international duty?
