The Seattle Sounders’ star has been permitted to left USA national team camp as reports link the 26-year-old winger with a move to the Welsh club.

According to the Athletic,

Jordan Morris’

loan move to

Swansea

is imminent as the Welsh club are trying to boost their promotion hopes by adding the American winger to their squad.

Morris

has scored 35 goals and provided 20 assists in his 105 MLS games for the

Sounders

, helping them bagging two MLS Cups during his four years at the club. the winger has also scored 10 goals in 39 USMNT appearances.

The forward first hit the headlines in 2014 when he became the first college player to be called into a USMNT squad since

Chris Albright,

 who was called up in 1999. Shortly after, he rejected a move to Bundesliga side,

Werder Bremen

, as he decided to sign with his hometown

Sounders

.

However,

Morris

admitted he’s open to experience European football when he was asked about the idea earlier this month:

"Yeah definitely. Some conversations are ongoing, with Seattle and in Europe a little bit. I think that, for me, it's a similar stance of kind of where I was before MLS Cup: If the right offer and the right team comes forward, it's something that I'd be interested in.

"If things don't work out and I end up in Seattle, I love being there and I feel like I'm growing a lot in Seattle. I think the league is growing, the quality of play is getting higher and I've felt myself develop there really, really well.

"But yeah, if the right opportunity came, it would definitely be something that I would look at. I guess we'll just have to kind of wait and see a bit, but still definitely open to those opportunities."

Alongside Morris,

D.C. United's

Paul Arriola

has also been linked with a loan move to

Swansea

by Yahoo Sport amid some uncertainty regarding the MLS season.
