Despite all of the work permit issues that have kept him from making a move to the English Premier League the past year, Juan Agudelo is reportedly still determined to ply his trade in England.
Agudelo is still a free agent after Stoke City parted ways with Agudelo last summer due to his inability to acquire a UK work permit. The 21-year-old American forward still maintains hope that he can find a home in England, with the Washington Post suggesting he was trying a new approach to being eligible to play in the Premier League.
The Washington Post report also claimed that New York City FC was interested in Agudelo, and that the New England Revolution, who maintain Agudelo’s MLS rights, were also interested in Agudelo prior to acquiring Jermaine Jones.
Agudelo hasn’t featured in an official match since completing a loan stint with Dutch side FC Utrecht, for whom he scored three goals in 18 appearances while on loan from Stoke City.
What do you think of Agudelo’s situation? Think he should keep holding out for the Premier League? Think he needs to aim for a smaller league? See him coming back to MLS?
