    Looks like he's trained with Marseille at least since May of last year. Not sure how long he stayed though.

    Re: Lester Dewee to France

    According to his twitter he was in France as late as March 20th and possibly was there this week though he vaguely just mentions "training"

    Heres a pic of him in his Marseille trainer - quality :D

    Bordeaux was also linked to Ethan White, who was a freshman at Maryland this year, while he was in high school. I wonder if they have a representative in the D.C. area.

    Re: Lester Dewee to France

    The YA article says he doesn't have a second nationality. I know France has non EU player rules. I'm not sure about Ligue 1 but I know Ligue 2 allows 2 non EU players for the first team and I believe 4 non EU players for the reserves.

    Re: Lester Dewee to France

    Ligue 1 rules are kind of complicated, they recognize Cotonou Agreement countries and other accord partners with the EU. Then their are the 4 actual foreign player spots.

    for any French speakers, starting page 40 it goes over the specifics.

    Liberian passported players should count as local under the Cotonou Accord.

    Well, they listed Moises Orozco at Tigres for the Dallas Cup roster, but that turned out to be unofficial. Hopefully it's final but US soccer press releases can't be taken as a definitive source.

    Re: Lester Dewee to Olympique de Marseille

    Any update? Don't see him listed on the Marseille site but I don't know how accurate that is, they only have 16 players listed for their U18/U19 roster. Through his Twitter, it looks like he might've been battling an injury.

    Re: Lester Dewee to France

    In 2008, the EU changed its reading of the Cotonou Agreement (the Association Agreement between the EU and the ACP countries).[6] It now stated that the Cotonou agreement should not be interpreted as mandating free movement of labour, but rather the free trade of goods and services. The Home Office were subsequently able to introduce new rules placing restrictions on Kolpak players, stating that only those who had held a valid work permit for four years had the right to be treated the same as EU citizens.[5]

    So, at worst, this will be like the Spanish "Queen Isabella" rules for the Spanish-Portuguese speaking players from Central-South America.

    At best, league can choose to interpret these rules at their wont.

    the league can do whatever it wants, but the cotonou agreement doesn't give anyone the right to work in the eu.

    Interesting that this guy doesnt seem to be in the running anymore for the U20s. Marseille is a pretty good place to be.

    Re: Lester Dewee to Olympique de Marseille

    My suspicion is that he never signed with Marseille. He is not listed on the roster of their reserve team or youth teams. US Soccer also has a habit of listing players with clubs with whom they are only trialing.
