BRIAN SCIARETTA - Sunday, January 19, 2014
After turning down an offer to sign with the Houston Dynamo, former Duke University and U.S. U-20 defender Sebastien Ibeagha is on trial with Aalborg BK in Denmark.

Ibeagha, 21, was born in Nigeria but moved to the United States as a young child an eventually became an American citizen. As one of the top defenders in college soccer, Ibeagha opted to begin his career in Europe.

In recent years, Ibeagha has seen time with U.S youth national teams. In 2011 he was on the U.S U-20 team which failed to qualify for the World Cup. He received callups for U-23 team in 2012.

His trial began over the weekend and will continue throughout the week where he will play in two friendlies this week. There is currently no timetable set by for making a decision on his future.

"With regards to Sebastien Ibeagha, he arrived here on Friday and will practice with the team throughout this week," Aalborg spokesman Martin Stigaard Skammelsen told YA. "He has not played in any friendlies yet, but can be included in the squad for two friendlies to be played this week. The first match is against AC Horsens on Friday and on Sunday against Vejle Boldklub. Both teams play in the Danish first division, the level below the Superliga, which is the premier division."

"As for a possible contract, there will be an ongoing evaluation during his stay, but no date is set with regards to making a decision on this," Stigaard Skammelsen added.

Aalborg BK currently sits in second place in the Danish Superliga and trails leaders Midtjylland by just four points. It will return from winter break on February 23 with a visit to Brondby.
