This is a good move for him. Why don't MLS teams do this more often?

My guess is the main factors are timezone, distance, and culture.

If you are Liverpool, Chelsea, etc and you need to send a young player on loan you usually have your pick up Championsip, League One, Scottish Premier, and even some Eredivisie teams you can send them too. Playing in any of those you can easily travel to watch him play, talk with their managers, have him come to your training grounds , etc.

Even if they thought highly of MLS (maybe some secretly do, but its irrelevant) its just more convenient to load them close by.

I'm reading that this was rejected, is that claim true?

i dont get it ... he does well but he cant even get an FA cup call? Would be great in MLS but if he wants to move the needle in liverpool he would have to stay in the UK no?

Apparently some sources probably read the FA reports wrong. Maybe he is still with Liverpool.

Looks to be making permanent move to Real Salt Lake. He shoulda stayed in England, and just moved to a Championship team. (funny how two posts ago I was of a different mind, what not making it to a World Cup does to you)

Unfortunately if kids like this aren't in Europe between ages of 16-21 I think the best we could expect is a Dempsey/Bradley type career. Kid def won't be what we were all hoping.

Who knows what he will turn out to be. Still has a bright future. Still has talent. And I think he will show that with RSL.

Dempsey's career was pretty good no? Definitely more than what would have been expected out of Lennon.

Lennon was at Liverpool at 17. He wasn't playing like Sterling. If he was, then we'd be seeing him like a Pulisic.

Well since he's staying in MLS he should at least get a call to Camp Cup Cake. It'll give us a chance to see how he truly matches up against the MLS Talent.
