It appears that A.J. Soares' time with Stabaek will be brief as the defender is set to depart tomorrow, according to coach Bob Bradley.
The Bent Musket reached out to Bradley to provide clarification in regards to Soares' relationship with the Norwegian club. The former US Men's National Team coach provided the following response:
"The situation with AJ is exactly what's been said. His representatives asked me if he could train with us between trials of other clubs. I agreed and he's been here since Monday. He played 45 minutes for us in a friendly match today vs Strommen, scoring a goal. He'll head out tomorrow."
With Soares apparently moving on from Stabaek, it will be interesting to see where he heads next. It was originally believed that the California native would join Hellas Verona, but talks with the Serie A club have reportedly stalled.
Although it's clear that Soares hopes to land in Europe, it's worth noting that the New England Revolution still holds his MLS rights as the team extended a bona fide offer before his contract expired.
