Neil Hlavaty has returned from Poland after completing his short term loan with Ekstraklasa club Jagiellona Bialystok but is still unsure if a return to Europe is in the cards.
Hlavaty was loaned to the Polish team in October where he appeared in two matches with the club. The native of Chicago, Illinois previously had playing stints with Cleveland of USL-2, the Chicago Fire reserve team and with a Swedish club before landing at Jagiellona.
Now that the loan has expired, Hlavaty's representative says that the former Boston University standout is back home and evaluating options for 2010.
"Neil is back in Chicago, he was only in Poland on a short term deal," Hlavaty's agent, Eddie Rock, recently told YA. "Neil is weighing attending an MLS training camp versus a return to Scandinavia."
The midfielder is already familiar playing in a nordic country after spending part of his 2009 with Östers IF. Hlavaty appeared in 12 matches in his six months with the club who were promoted from the Division 1 Södra to the Superettan for the 2010 season.
