    Apparently a 99' with an Italian passport is heading to Aston Villa. He's been in U14 camps before and was previously with NYRB.

    Saw this on the USAprospects Twitter. Not sure if that person posts on here but they do a great job of tracking young players. (It's not me I swear)

    On his Twitter, he says he is also going to visit Fulham.

    I did a little perusing of his twitter page. It looks like Southampton to me. He's been retweeting a lot of Southampton news recently such as their results and Charles Boehm (MLS writer) tweeted at him "May the saints be with you" which he subsequently retweeted.

    If it is indeed true, Southampton is a great club and good for him.

    He just finished a US U15 camp where they played at the USSDA Winter Showcase against Weston FC, NYRB, and De Anza Force U16s. The team went 1-1-1 in those matches.

    Has this been officially announced, beyond the U.S. Soccer release? I can't find any mention of Gruno on the club site, though that is not unusual for a player of his age; I can see from his Twitter that he says he's there, but is it a schoolboy deal, academy slot, extended training, something else?

    Only problem with the US Soccer release is that it says he is at Leicester FC. That's a rugby club.

    Seriously - They don't tend to give out too many details on the Under 16's. They are even sparse with their match reports.

    He has a Jan 20 1999, DOB so he should be able to hang with the older boys
