White ends Danish contract

White moves from Denmark, to Union?

Jeremiah White and AGF Aarhus have agreed to part ways, clearing the way for him to potentially join Philadelphia Union.

Aarhus have freed White from his contract early and allowed him to leave the team via free transfer, the Danish team announced Monday. White, a Delaware Valley native, looks lined up to potentially join Major League Soccer.

“He is a fine player, who still could have played an important role on the team, but because of some fiscal conditions, we jointly reached that the best solution for both parties to terminate the cooperation,” Aarhus sporting director Brian Steen Nielsen said, according to Aarhus’ official team web site (translated by Google).

White said he had a few offers, but he did not go into specifics. The speedy winger, who has one cap for the U.S., finishes his Aarhus stay with seven goals in 93 appearances.

“I have had it good in the AGF, but due to a markedly changed tax situation I have with my family thought it best to seek new pastures,” White said.

Many suspect he’ll return home to run the wing for the Union, and signs certainly point to that. (For more info, click here.) Should he join MLS for the first time, the Union would have first shot at him in the allocation process. Also, White and his wife have small children, and both hail from southeastern Pennsylvania. One would expect that if he returns stateside, he’ll find himself playing for the Union.

What do you think? Looking forward to a prospective White signing? Or skeptical it will happen? What kind of fit do you think he’d be with manager Peter Nowak’s squad? Weigh in below.
