Being rumored PSV is interested in him

So many Whitecaps kids seem to leave before ever getting a shot with the first team

Take it for what it's worth. It's an anonymus twitter account that hasn't tweeted without a reply in 2 years.

I'll take it with a cattle lick sized block of salt right now, but you never know, right?

by work, you mean repeatedly taking rumours from actually reliable sources and not giving any credit whatsoever

What ever you wanna focus on. Haven’t seen the rumour anywhere but here though.

It's been frustrating that the Whitecaps have been so bad but haven't found a way to get him MLS minutes. Though playing with youth national teams and U23s regularly isn't a bad thing.

It remains a constant mystery why the Whitecaps are so unable or unwilling to give their young players first team minutes. While teams like Dallas and Toronto and Seattle are introducing one or two or three young players with significant minutes each season, the Whitecaps have not given a young player - Alphonso Davies aside - ANY significant minutes over the course of a season since Sam Adekugbe. If Colyn has a chance to go elsewhere he needs to get there as soon as he can.

Not many players in Toronto, Dallas or Seattle are getting minutes at 17. Most players don’t break into the lineup until they’re older, but Vancouver can’t seem to keep kids around long enough for them to develop into first team players. They all leave before they’re 20.

Not enough Alphonso Davies aside. He was good enough for the league when came in as a 15 year old. The next season he could barely get a start even though he was among the top players on the team. It wasn't until last season that, when he was head and shoulders better than anyone else, that he managed to get starts.

So, what's happened with this PSV thing?

Even if PSV was interested, he's under 18 and unless he has an EU passport, he couldn't officially sign there until March and I doubt that Vancouver will let him go for free, so reastically, he couldn't go to PSV until next summer.

He has a Dutch Passport, Speaks Dutch, and is a huge Ajax and Eredivisie fan. Maybe the Ajax part will keep him away from PSV 😂

Interesting to know.  If so, it makes you wonder where the guy who tweeted this got his info.

Who knows, but I can't blame him if he jumps ship. 0 minutes with the worst midfield in the league ahead of you.
