The departure of Mohamed Zidan from Borussia Dortmund has opened the door of opportunity for U.S. Under-23 national team forward Terrence Boyd.
With Zidan having moved to Mainz during the transfer window, Boyd and fellow youngster Marvin Duksch have been summoned from their respective reserve teams by head coach Jurgen Klopp. The pair of strikers will train with Dortmund's first team and could see time in upcoming games if needed.
Boyd's promotion to the first team should not come as much of a surprise given that he already dressed for a league match earlier this season. It is, however, a sign of growth for one of the brightest forward prospects in the American pipeline, one who enjoyed a strong December camp with the U.S. U-23 team.
Borussia Dortmund's next game is on Friday against FC Nurnberg.
