Report: FC Dallas Homegrown Dante Sealy to loan out to PSV Eindhoven
At the start of the summer, when MLS and FC Dallas had a break in their schedules, home striker Dante Sealy took the opportunity to travel to Europe to train with the Dutch PSV squad. Eindhoven. It seems that the training session was more than just an introduction.
A new report from Tom Bogert on MLSSoccer.com suggests a deal is nearing completion that will send Sealy back to PSV on a two-year loan, and discuss next steps once he’s there.
By reports outside the Netherlands of Eindhovens Dagblad and others, Sealy would join the club’s second team, Jong PSV, which plays in the Dutch second tier.
The 18-year-old rose through the club’s academy ranks upon signing an HGP contract with the team. He spent most of his 2019 season with North Texas SC in USL League One as they won a league title during that season. So far in 2021, he has found himself on the bench for FC Dallas on several occasions, scoring a goal against Portland in May.
As Bogert’s report indicates, Sealy was also one of several FC Dallas players to surrender Bayern Munich last winter for a training camp. This one has already given good returns for FC Dallas and the Homegrowns who have been there. Ricardo Pepi is the team’s top scorer, Justin Che has found a few minutes as a right-back while flirting with a transfer to Munich, Brandon Servania and Thomas Roberts have also secured loans at Austrian clubs this year.
