San Jose Earthquakes have acquired 17-year old Gambian midfielder Omar Jasseh.

The former Charlton Athletic, Chelsea and Crystal Palace youth academy star becomes the youngest player to sign for the Quakes in their franchise history.

San Jose general manager John Doyle was delighted Jasseh had decided to commit to the Quakes after training with Toronto FC last year.

"We are thrilled to add such a young, talented player like Omar," said Doyle. "He is a very exciting, dynamic attacking player who has a bright future here in San Jose."
