BRIAN SCIARETTA - Thursday, January 24, 2013
After winning two straight Tippeligaen titles in Norway, Molde could be adding another American to the team in US U-18 forward Ben Spencer.

Spencer, a 6-5 forward, has previously trained with Molde but returned again this month to take part in the tream's preason tour in Spain. According to all reports, Spencer is impressing at the club and could official join the team in March.

"He is currently with Molde right now and is doing very, very well," Spencer's agent Jim Solbakken told YA on Thursday. "He cannot sign until he is 18 [in March.] If he keeps playing well and proves himself, he can potentially earn a contract."

Molde FK head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aslo told Norwegian outlet RBnett that "Ben is a player that we may agree with."

Under FIFA rules, Spencer may not sign with a foreign club until his 18th birthday on March 28 but he will continue to train with the club.

Spencer is a native of Albuquerque, New Mexico and has developed primarily with the academies of Real Salt Lake and Chivas USA.

Molde open their Tippseason on March 17 with a visit to Viking.
