PSC are proud to confirm the signing of Leo Londe with North Texas SC of MLS Next Pro.
The 20-year old winger is no stranger to success through PSC events, having received interest from multiple clubs in the past six months, including a trial with EPL side Sheffield United and multiple EFL Championship clubs in England.
Londe grew up in the Dallas area and played soccer with an FC Dallas affiliate in his early years. After initially attending a PSC combine in 2022, he attended PSC’s Residential academy this summer in England where Lee Holmes and Gareth Holmes secured trials with English pro teams.
Leo subsequently impressed on PSC's showcase in Estonia and Sweden last month where further opportunities presented themselves across Europe, before the winger opted to sign with North Texas and stay close to home.
FC Dallas became aware of Londe after his trial in England with Sheffield United and was invited to tryout with the club in November.
Success has not been easy for Leo after being overlooked multiple times but he has continued to work hard and put himself in as many showcase and development opportunities as possible during the last 18 months since being seen by PSC the first time at the Houston combine in 2022.
PSC Director Tom Taylor commented: “Since we first saw Leo at our Texas tryout we could see he had a lot of talent and could not understand how he had not been picked up by a club in this country. It’s great to see him finally get a good contract with his local club North Texas and I believe this will be the start of a successful career for him. Lee and Gareth Holmes played a really big part in helping Leo during the summer with some great opportunities in England and also provided a lot of personal support so a big thanks to them for that. We are really proud of Leo’s hard work and character during the last year and its an opportunity he truly deserves.”
All here at PSC wish Leo the very best in his debut professional season and believe this will be the beginning of a fruitful career for the attacking protege.
