Across State Lines: Palmer-Brown Headed Back to City?

An update on former Kansas City players.

Soccer: International Friendly Men’s Soccer-Bolivia at USA Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a rough first full season in Europe for Erik Palmer-Brown after signing with Manchester City last winter. This season, Palmer-Brown had gone on loan to Dutch Eredivisie side, NAC Breda. Playing time has been a struggle for Palmer-Brown in Holland as he’s played just six times in Breda’s 18 league games this season as they sit in the relegation playoffs currently on just 15 points. Now come reports that Breda relationship with Manchester City have soured over the players that City has loaned to the club. The relationship appears to be so bad right now that the reports out of Holland are that Palmer-Brown will be returning to City this winter. That’d leave Palmer-Brown looking for a new loan for the rest of the season, or potentially spending it with the reserves at City.

Elsewhere, other former players are joining new clubs for the new season with Aurelien Collin joining the Philadelphia Union, Mechack Jerome joining El Paso Locomotive in the USL Championship, and Soony Saad joining Al Ansar FC in Lebanon.

Here’s this week’s full update.
