Oscar Ceren, brother of Orlando’s Darwin, in talks with Cosmos

Orlando City striker Darwin Ceren may be welcoming family to the United States.

Younger brother Oscar Ceren, 23, says he is weighing offers to play abroad — including a possible move to the New York Cosmos.

“My agent told me there are opportunities coming to play in the United States or Europe, specifically Spain,” Ceren told La Prensa Grafica. “He is working on that and said I should wait 15 days before re-signing with Aguila.

“He mentioned that he had talks with the club of “El Ruso” Flores (New York Cosmos) and other clubs that I can’t remember, but he is working on that.”

Ceren has been offered an extension to remain with Aguila. In fact, he was expected to re-sign this past Friday. However, the El Salvadorian midfielder has interest in playing abroad, forcing him to delay his contract signing until all options are known.

The Cosmos would be an interesting fit. A natural right midfielder, Ceren would be in direct competition with Cosmos standout, Walter Restrepo and fan favorite, Sebastian Guenzatti. However, his ability to play centrally and on the left can make him an invaluable utility man for the club.

Ceren, an El Salvador Youth international, began his professional career at the age of 18, making 110 appearances over five seasons with Juventud Independiente of the Salvadorian Primera, scoring 19 goals for the club. Ceren joined Aguilas in 2014, making 30 starts on the season, scoring four goals.

He also mentions the possibility of joining Orlando City’s USL affiliate, Louisville City FC.

A Cosmos spokesperson issued no comment on the report.
