Wow, i thought it was just me who saw him there. Well to be fair it was my 11 year old son who spotted him first

This seems to be the origin of it. Find it fanciful from Chicago’s media as he’d been getting minutes for us. Not to mention this would be in their designated player slot which from my understanding is reserved for marquee players who’s salaries would break the club’s salary cap - don’t imagine a loan move is seen as a prudent use of these positions by MLS clubs.

Great to see. Looks promising already. Damned injuries. If he's anywhere near as productive as Sarr and Udogie have been then that's 3 exceptional youngsters signed in just over a couple of years. A stonking return for any club.

I think he will go out on loan hopefully to the championship. We have Richy, Son and Scarlett (who can’t be loaned again) and only 17 games remaining.

I think that he will stay in January. Richy and Son has both played when fit this season at either LW or ST. That would mean that Veliz is number one off the bench for the striker position.

His strength and ability in the air are also key qualities when trying to make positive subs up front when we need a goal.

His goal against Brighton would have given him lots of confidence and I'm not sure it would be good to remove him from the South American contingent he has with us. He already has 70+ games of senior football under his belt as well.

Be great to get him out on loan after his injury, needs game time and with the forwards we currently have I don’t think he gets ahead of any of them plus we have Son to come back.

It will be to replace Rafa Mir who looks like is on his way to Valencia, However Mir has only played 381 mins in the league this season, so don't think it will be a great loan. I would rather he stays here, I think he still has a part to play.

They are struggling for Goals this season. Would be a good loan for him if he actually gets some game time.

I'd rather he be an option on our bench than an option on Sevilla's tbh.

If we are considering loaning him out it should be to a team where he is expected to be a regular starter IMO.

Good loan, much needed. While Scarlett and Lankshear seem just as decent options for us atm.
