Philadelphia born Jeremiah White is looking to come back to North America, but it won't be with his hometown team.
White, a former American international, was invited to join the Montreal Impact's evaluation camp, joining 24 other players for a six day tryout with MLS' next team. The versatile attacking midfielder joins fellow American, and Orlando City Lions star, Jamie Watson in the camp.
White has played in only 15 games since leaving AGF Aarhus, a Danish First League club. The 28-year-old was unable to settle with either Al-Ettifaq, of Iraq, or GKS Bełchatów, of Poland. Six teams in six professional seasons have led to White being a free agent since January 2011, when he left GKS.
The Philadelphia Union had White in their 2011 MLS preseason camp and appeared to be set to sign the local soccer product, but the two sides could not come to an agreement on the terms of his contract.
After leading the ACC in scoring in his sophomore year of college, and going through an injury plagued junior year before finishing his time at Wake Forest having been named ACC Player of the Year in 2003, White was drafted in the third round of the 2004 MLS SuperDraft by the New England Revolution. White chose to pursue a career in Europe instead of signing with MLS.
