Werder Bremen boss seems to downplay Jordan Morris' training stint

Werder Bremen's Sporting Direction confirmed that Jordan Morris will be training with the Bundesliga club on Tuesday, but also seemed to downplay its significance.

"It's a good opportunity for us to get to know a player better," Thomas Eichin told the team's website. "Nothing more, nothing less."

While this could be seen as a somewhat encouraging sign, it hardly means the Sounders are in the clear. Whether Morris' time in Germany is spent training or formally on trial, there remains a good chance that he could do enough to impress coaches that he's offered a contract. If Morris does choose to sign with a foreign club, the Sounders would basically be left with nothing as he's not under any kind of financial obligation to the club or MLS.
