Inter Miami have added defender Noah Allen to the roster as a homegrown player through the 2024 MLS season with options for 2025 and 2026. 

The 17-year-old has already featured for Inter Miami, playing in the first two games of the 2022 campaign against Chicago Fire and Austin FC. He was able to play for the South Florida side after being signed on a short-term loan agreement from their MLS NEXT Pro side on both occasions.

“Noah is a fantastic young player who has ascended through our development pathway how we’d hoped,” chief soccer office and sporting director Chris Henderson said in a release. 

“He has been with us from the start, passing from our academy to Inter Miami CF II and now to the first team, and we’re excited to continue his development here at home. We’re very happy to continue to represent our community by putting homegrown players on the field.”

Prior to signing a contract, Allen worked himself through the team’s academy. He formed part of Inter Miami’s inaugural academy team that made its debut in a tournament in South Korea in 2019

The defender is Inter Miami’s fourth academy product on the current roster. 

He was also named 2021 USL League One Young Player of the Year for his contribution to the MLS NEXT Pro side Inter Miami CF II. 

“I’m over the moon to sign for Inter Miami,” Allen, a Florida native, said. “There’s been a lot of paperwork with the loans going back and forth. But I’m just so happy to now officially be part of the team.”

The team returns to the pitch on Saturday to face LAFC after a difficult start to their season. Inter Miami has yet to win a match, managing one draw and one defeat.
