Miami FC adding 17-year-old forward Stefan Jerome

Miami FC, which has scored one or zero goals in nine of its 11 league games this season, is hoping to increase its offense with the signing of 17-year-old forward Stefan Jerome.

Traffic Sports, the team's ownership group, was set to announce the signing Wednesday.

Jerome, a Davie native, plays on the U.S. under-20 men's national team, and competed with the under-17 team in the 2009 under-17 World Cup in Nigeria.

Jerome is a player the Blues have had their eyes on for a while.

``He's a very young, talented played that I have been scouting for the last two years,'' said Fernando Clavijo, Miami FC's director of soccer. ``I've followed him to some international tournaments, I've followed him to the World Cup, and I think he's a tremendous talent.'
