On loan with Anderlecht last season, Saief made 17 appearances while providing a goal after joining the club in January.
Saief featured for the USMNT prior to last summer’s Gold Cup before an injury took him out of action for the tournament. The midfielder also earned an appearance in the team’s win over Paraguay, but was not named to the most recent roster for Monday’s Bolivia match.
