Jamaica’s talented international player Michael Seaton from MLS team DC United is set to train with Inter Milan for the remainder of the offseason.
D.C. United and Inter Milan will consummate their relationship – formed when United majority owner Erick Thohir purchased a controlling share in the Serie A club in October – by sending Homegrown product Michael Seaton to train in Italy for the remainder of the offseason.
The 17-year-old Seaton will join Inter’s Primavera squad – the oldest of the famed Italian club’s academy teams, comprising players ages 17-20 – until United’s preseason camp begins at the end of this month.
A United spokesman confirmed the training stint and said Seaton is already in Italy.
“I spoke with him today when he got to Milan,” the spokesman stated. “He’s really excited about this opportunity and will train with Inter’s Primavera team … for two weeks before joining us in preseason. This is our first exchange since the official partnership with Milan, and we hope it is the first of many.”
Seaton was signed to a Homegrown deal in January last year, becoming the first player born after MLS’ launch in 1996 to be signed to a team in the league.
The talented Jamaican youth international spent 2013 between United and their USL PRO affiliate, the Richmond Kickers. He made three appearances for D.C., including one start. With Richmond, he scored five goals in 15 games.
He received his first senior Jamaica national team call versus Trinidad & Tobago on November 15, 2013.
