Szetela Loaned to Italy

Danny Szetela has been loaned with an option to purchase to Serie B club Brescia Calcio, according to the website of his current side, Racing Santander. The agreement will last through June of this year.
Playing time has been extremely scarce for the former Columbus Crew midfielder, as the 20-year-old midfielder has not appeared in a single La Liga game and has logged just 65 minutes total - all via a start in the club's fourth round Copa del Rey draw against Malaga CF.

Solid play with the US MNT over the summer at the U-20 World Cup increased interest in the Passaic, New Jersey native. Before moving to Spain, Szetela had been pursued by Roma and Newcastle United, among others, but ultimately joined Racing after the conclusion of the 2007 MLS season.

He received his first call-up with the senior squad in last October's victory over Switzerland, setting up Michael Bradley for the game-winning goal.
