The US midfielder has narrowed down his choices after being released by Helsingborg.

US international midfielder Alejandro Bedoya has three remaining suitors following his release from Helsingborg, according to

The 26-year-old is hoping to have his move to a new club finalised by the end of the week after Swedish giants Helsingborg declined to renew his contract.

Two of the three clubs pursuing the American playmaker have been revealed. Heerenveen of the Eredivisie are thought to be the strongest candidate, whilst Swiss power Grasshopper Zurich have also been named. Meanwhile, a mystery club from France’s League 1 are also involved.

Bedoya has not been short of interest following the announcement of his free agency, already having turned down German second divisioners Greuther Furth, Croatian giants Hajduk Split and Randers FC of Denmark.

Helsingborg’s decision to let go of Bedoya could be seen as rather strange, given its timing. With the Swedish season already well underway, Bedoya had already amassed an impressive seven goals and five assists in 14 matches.

Bedoya is unlikely to return to America, having never even played an MLS game. After graduating from Boston College in 2008 he opted to waive that year’s MLS SuperDraft and instead explore options abroad.

Bedoya spent his first two seasons in Sweden with Orebro SK before moving to Scottish club Rangers. Following their famous liquidation and subsequent relegation he returned to Sweden with 2011 Allsvenskan champions Helsingborg.
