The Mirror, and Wikipedia, are linking us to Michael Bradley. Standing at 1.85m (6ft 1 in old money) and 21 in July, he plays for Heerenveen (Holland) in midfield. He knocks in a goal about one in three games. He is 'defensive' midfield for the USA, so should be visible in the forthcoming friendly.
It seems to make sense given his CV and DM's liking for English speakers. Mind you, Mark Hughes and others are thinking along similar lines - look him up in Wikipedia for I.

Using the Tony Marsh school of scouting he should be a storming succcess because he is tall. Towering above Leon Osman, Pienaar, and Arteta At 6ft 1" Tony must think we have the new Christiano Ronaldo on our hands.

Anyone who’s a genuine midfielder would be an improvement at the moment though. As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, our most successful formation is 4-5-1 and we only actually own 4 midfielders...
