  • Brek Shea, Fulham

Looks like the youngsters at FC Dallas won’t all be there much longer. According to some reports from England, Fulham may be after Dallas striker Brek Shea.

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson looks set to plunder the US market once again with reports suggesting that he is keen to lure FC Dallas starlet Brek Shea to Craven Cottage in the January transfer window.

And they may well be joined by 19-year-old Shea, with The Sun reporting that he has caught the eye of Hodgson with a number of impressive displays in he MLS since making his debut last year.

Hodgson is said to be keen on bolstering his attacking options in the New Year and is thought to be considering a 2million offer for the striker, who is also equally adept at playing on the wing.

I don’t think it is any secret here in Dallas that guys like Shea won’t be here in Dallas next year if Schellas Hyndman has anything to do about it. I wouldn’t be shocked to see him and FCD easily go for a transfer fee like the one Fulham is considering over Shea.

Is that price right for Shea? I think it is fair considering the lack of playing time he has gotten in Dallas. I know he isn’t one that is totally happy in Dallas so don’t be shocked to see a move like this in January.

    Given his terrible play in the recent U20 WC I doubt anybody would take his much less buy him. He was found out big time.

    GHM, thats a matter of opinion. While he did not play well against South Korea, most "experts" rated his play in the first two games fairly high. That being said, IMO there is ZERO chance of Shea getting a work permit to play in the UK (unless he has some European connection I'm not aware of) so I don't really see this happening.
