Gringo Report: Bornstein loan away from Tigres possible
GUADALAJARA, Mexico — Jonathan Bornstein could be granted a loan move away from Tigres UANL this winter in a bid to get more regular first-team action, MLSsoccer.com has learned.
“There is interest elsewhere in Mexico and in MLS,” Bornstein's agent, Lyle Yorks, said on Monday.
Bornstein admitted earlier this month to MLSsoccer.com that, while he was happy in Mexico and at Tigres, he was getting increasingly frustrated at the lack of playing time, which has put him off the radar of new US national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann.
The former Chivas USA captain also spoke of his goal to make his mark in his mother's homeland of Mexico, but interest in his services is brewing on the other side of the Atlantic, too.
“There is also some European interest, including a Belgian team,” said Yorks, who added that a loan deal is the most likely outcome for 26-year-old Bornstein.
The Los Angeles-area native has 38 caps for the United States national team, playing mainly at left back. However, he revealed recently that he has been adapting to more of a defensive midfield role while at Tigres.
