Jordan Morris will not join Werder Bremen as he wants to stay in America

Werder Bremen have announced that U.S. international attacker Jordan Morris will not be joining the club for now as he wants to pursue his career in America.

Morris, 21, has been on trial with Bremen at their winter training camp in Turkey and the Bundesliga club's CEO, Thomas Eichin, had said he was confident a deal would be completed

However, Eichin announced on the club's official website on Tuesday that Morris had decided against signing a deal.

"Following intense talks, the player made clear that he currently sees his future in America," Eichin said. "Of course, we respect this decision.

"We're in a situation now where we need players who identify with Werder and the way things are done here completely, in order for them to focus properly on the task ahead.

"For this reason, we are distancing ourselves from a transfer for the time being, but we will remain in close contact with him and are entertaining the idea of working together in the future."

Morris trained with the Seattle Sounders youth team while playing in college for Stanford but was eligible to join Bremen on a free transfer, with the German club only required to pay a compensation fee in line with the FIFA regulations.
