    That's what it says on this YNT roster:

    CHICAGO (Aug. 8, 2014) – U.S. Under-14 Boys’ National Team head coach Brian Johnson has named a 48-man roster for a domestic training camp in Carson, California, that will take place Aug. 9-16.

    ...

    Timothy Weah (Paris-Saint Germain; Rosedale, N.Y.)
    http://www.ussoccer.com/stories/2014/08/08/14/08/140808-u14-bnt-training-camp-roster

    And also apparently this page on the PSG site:

    http://www.psg.fr/fr/Association/4010013/Fiche-Joueur/3363/Weah-Thimotee

    "Thimotee" is awesome. However, the club calls him a defender.

    He's listed as a 2000, and I'm listed as old.

    PSG ... Weah ... George Weah, Jr. = YA last seen at PSG .... You don't suppose George Weah, Sr. might have another American son, do ya?

    Definitely keep those genes in the US player pool, even if they seem to have missed Junior almost entirely.

    HE'S GOT THE NAME AND THE GAME
    Timothy Weah, son of soccer great George Weah, has some lofty aspirations

    He seems to have been pretty active with the YNT setup, such as it is possible to be at his age. And he's in a USSDA club. Here's hoping he makes it. My gosh, will it ever be a long time before we know...

    Probably. Is the timing right for him to have been born while George was at Marseille? Seems about right................

    Possible this kid has a drawer full of passports. I think his mom is American with Jamaican roots. Plus Liberia, of course.

    But looking at French citizenship law, it wouldn't be easy to get French citizenship at birth. But, it appears that George became a naturalized French citizen while playing for PSG (which almost cost him a chance to run for Liberian president).

    Wonder why he's wearing a Toulouse shirt in that picture.

    Good question. It seems worth mentioning that in his games for PSG's academy, he played with nothing Toulouse.

    I assume thats a youth contract. He's only 15, so its unlikely to be a professional contract.
