Moises Orozco could make the first team
In US soccer circles, UANL Tigres is known primarily as the home of Jonathan Bornstein, but the club has also become a magnet for Mexican-American youth players. More than a dozen Americans have spent time in Tigres' youth academy over the past few years.

As Tigres' first team reconvenes for preseason this month, the Mexican media has reported that nine academy invitees will vie for a place on the senior squad. Of these nine, five hold American citizenship.

Grella on Leeds United chopping block
With the English seasons done and dusted, a handful of Americans are set to change addresses for the upcoming year. Jon-Paul Pittman and Seb Harris are signed with new teams, while Marcus Hahnemann, Mike Grella, and Anton Peterlin are still searching for new homes.

American international Hahnemann was not offered a new contract with Wolverhampton after spending most of 2011 stuck on Wolves' bench. The US goalie spent two seasons with Wolves and is now looking for a new team which, as he confirmed in an interview prior to the Gold Cup, he hopes to have in place by late-June. Rumors are rampant that the former Reading star might end up in an MLS uniform soon, with his hometown Seattle the most talked about candidate, though nothing has been confirmed.

Enochs expected to resume role with U23s
The season ended in disappointment for Osnabrück assistant coach Joe Enochs as his team came out on the losing end of the relegation playoff with 3. Liga third-place team Dymamo Dresden.

A 94th-minute header by Dresden striker Dani Schahin following a corner was the ultimate decider, and a short-range strike from Robert Koch in the final minute as Osnabrück put everything forward made everything certain, giving Dresden a 4-2 aggregate win.
