Jordan Morris to Werder Bremen is just a matter of "when" per club's sporting director

The on-going transfer saga of Jordan Morris has taken another twist. Thomas Eichin, Werder Bremen's sporting director, told a German news outlet on Sunday that it's no longer a matter of "if" the striker signs with the Bundesliga club, but "when" he'll sign.

Morris has been training with Bremen for over a week now and has even appeared for them in a friendly, in which he recorded a lovely outside-of-the-foot assist. The original plan was for the 21-year-old to report to United States men's national team camp on January 20th, but we'll see how that plays out with the increased interest from the club.

The high-ranking official went on to say that Morris has done nothing in his short stint with the club but prove what they've already thought of him via advanced scouting. Eichin goes on to say that Morris and fellow trialist, Laszlo Kleinheisler, both fit the club's current needs. Expectations is something the sporting director hopes to avoid placing on the two newcomers as they work their way into the squad.

It appears as if Werder Bremen are ready to bring Morris in. All that remains now is for the player to decide which destination, Bremen or the Seattle Sounders, is the best for him.
