Sesay Signs With MLS

Israel Sesay, a Sierra Leone-born forward who has lived in the Washington area for seven years and attended the U.S. under-17 residency program at Bradenton, has signed with MLS and will be available in a weighted lottery this week, sources in the soccer industry said today.

Sesay, who will turn 17 next month, was not included on the U.S. U-17 World Cup roster because of apparent citizenship issues, but his speed and technical ability have made him one of the program's top pro prospects.

Columbus, which won the Robbie Rogers lottery in the spring, and Toronto -- which has been granted numerous player acquisition methods in its expansion year -- will not participate in this one.
