Premier League clubs are getting first crack at the USA's best young players.

With FC Dallas midfielder Brek Shea to trial at Arsenal and DC United goalkeeper Bill Hamid already training with West Bromwich Albion, tribalfootball.com has learned more USA development players will be placed at Premier League clubs for training experience in the coming weeks.

Colorado Rapids' Jeff Larentowicz will be on his way to England this week, while Chicago Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson's proposed stint at Manchester United has already been confirmed.

US Soccer will be sending more of their best young players to English clubs during the MLS offseason to keep them sharp - but it will also give Premier League outfits the chance to run the rule over the best of America's young talent ahead of the January market.
