BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, February 4, 2011
On Thursday it was announced that American forward Stefan Jerome will go out on loan for the rest of the season with Sigma Olomouc of Czech Republic's top league, the Gambrinus liga.

Jerome's playing rights are currently owned by Traffic Sports. The 18 year old most recently played with Miami FC.

In January, he went on a two week trial with Sigma Olomouc and impressed the coaches.

He will now join the club for the upcoming second half of the season season but it remains unclear what level he will start at within the club's organization

"Sigma have signed Stefan Jerome on loan," Sigma's press officer Petr Pelisek told YA. "Stefan is coming to the Czech Republic on 17th of February. The coach, Zdenek Psotka, said Stefan will be a standard player of our first team but he can play for the [U-19 team] too. It means he can play for both the first, the second team as well as for the U 19 team."

As part of the deal, Sigma Olomouc will also retain an option to buy Jerome at the conclusion of the loan period.

The club will return to league action on February 27th when they travel to take on last place Usti nad Labem

The Swedish league's transfer window doesn't close for a while, so he could still work out a deal with them. I think he's still over there now, but it's ridiculous that it's taking this long for them to get him signed.

Any word on whether Traffic will get its act together on Boss and get him playing somewhere? Glad they worked something out for Jerome.
