Fulham turn down chance to hand Premier League return to relegated USMNT ace Brendan Aaronson – The Mirror

Fulham have turned down the chance to bring USMNT star Brenden Aaronson back to the Premier League after the midfielder was relegated from Leeds United.

The 22-year-old arrived at Elland Road to much fanfare, joining compatriots Tyler Adams and Yorkshire coach Jesse Marsch, but it quickly became a season to forget for the trio. They would be joined by compatriot Weston McKennie in January, but Marsch would soon be relieved of his duties with the Whites facing a relegation dogfight.

Two other managers were unable to stop the slide, with Javi Gracia having become the second coaching casualty of the season just four games into the end of the campaign before Sam Allardyce finally brought them down after failing to win any of his leading games. In all, Aaaronson contributed a lone attack in 36 appearances during his first term in England’s top flight.

After three managers failed to beat the drop, it’s clear several stars are likely to be moved on in the current months, especially as a large number of players have relegation clauses in their contracts. One of the players who appears to be available for a transfer this summer is Aaronson. Fulham have been linked with a possible move to bring him to Craven Cottage on loan.

The former Red Bull Salzburg ace was mentioned as a possible reinforcement for Marco Silva’s side in the number 10 position, while the Daily Mail reported that the West London club were in talks over a potential deal. The Cottagers were a surprise in the Premier League last season, finishing a respectable 10th place under the Portuguese coach.

However, it now looks like this potential opening has closed for the New Jersey-born talent, with The Telegraph reporting that a move to Union Berlin could be on the cards instead. The Bundesliga team defied the odds to qualify for the Champions League last season, with the Urs Fischer’s outfit the latest to consider a nosedive, according to the report.

As was the case with a hypothetical move to Fulham, Leeds United would not be in a particularly strong position to resist the German club’s rapprochement due to the relegation clause in the player’s contract. Despite never quite reaching the expected heights during his first campaign in England, it seems that his stock still remains high on the continent due to his performance with his previous employers.

The situation also remains complicated due to the fact that 49ers Enterprises are still awaiting final approval to acquire the Elland Road club from the EFL. Taking charge of the club will see them take 100 per cent control from former chairman Andrea Radrizzani once they pass the English Football League owner and director test.

Although it is usually a formality, the process can also take several weeks. Previously, former Leeds United star Carlton Palmer explained that EFL Championship club Aaaronson are likely to lose at least this coming season due to clauses in his contract.

He told Football League World: “It looks like Brenden has a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave the club on loan if Leeds are relegated. Given his salary I would expect the player to leave on loan, if not permanently, this summer.”
