Promising Cameroonian forward Charles Eloundou is still being heavily targeted by Colorado Rapids.
The 18-year old, who made his international debut against Tanzania in February, currently plays for homeland club AS Fortuna but his rights were purchased by MLS back in December.
Rapids technical director Paul Bravo indicated that the situation is not all that straightforward but was hoping to sort it out as soon as possible.
"I think we're close to getting a resolution with his situation," Bravo said.
"What we've put together is a timeline of the events and MLS proceeds us getting the players right. MLS signed him back in December when he turned 18, and that has started the timeline. Unfortunately, it has taken much longer that we hoped and expected.
"It's up to the Cameroon FA to respond to the U.S. Soccer request [for Eloundou]. And then it's up to the league to request from the federation to submit that stuff to FIFA, and then for FIFA to take action. The next step is hopefully to get a ruling from FIFA."
