Marc Pelosi is no longer at Liverpool. The English Premier League club has opted to let Pelosi go, ending the American's four-year stay on Merseyside and making him a free agent.

Pelosi has been at Liverpool since the 2011 U-17 World Cup, when his fabulous play earned him interested from several big European clubs. Early on, the reports were that he was playing phenomenally and impressing the Reds, but injuries caused him issues. The biggest one was a 14-month absence due to a broken leg. Last season, he played with the club's U-21 team, but apparently did not do well enough to make Liverpool want to keeo him around.

While Pelosi's time at Liverpool has been rocky, he has remained a fixture with the United States youth national teams.He just recently played for the U-23 side at the Toulon Tournament and figured to be in the mix as that team looked to qualify for the Olympics this fall.

It's unclear what Pelosi will do next. He could look for another club in Europe or he could try MLS. If he did sign with MLS, he would be subject to the Allocation Order because he was one of the 24 players that the league listed on its Allocation ranking list.
