Colyn has been on trial at SPAL since September 25 and was on trial at Dutch club PSV last offseason. The 18-year-old signed his Homegrown deal in 2018 and made his MLS debut as a substitute on Decision Day that same year but hasn't featured since. He has played for Canada at the U-15 and U-17 levels, scoring one goal in four appearances for the U-17s.
SPAL currently play in Serie B, the second tier of professional soccer in Italy. They were relegated from Serie A last season. Monday is the transfer deadline day in Italy and much of Europe, but sources expect the deal to be completed in time.
Colyn will join the club's U-19 side to start. The club's U-19 side are in the top youth division in Italy, alongside the U-19 outfits for Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Roma and more.
