Terrence Boyd could be returning to play in Germany next season.
According to a report in German publication BILD, the U.S. Men’s National Team forward has agreed to terms with RB Leipzig, which achieved promotion to 2. Bundesliga for the upcoming season. The report states that a transfer fee of 1.5 million euros ($2 million) has been discussed, however, nothing has been agreed to yet and Rapid Vienna are reluctant to let Boyd leave.
The 23-year-old Boyd is coming off another strong season for Rapid, scoring 15 goals in 29 Austrian league matches, and added another five goals for the club in the UEFA Europa League. In his two years in Vienna, Boyd has scored 37 goals in all competitions.
Boyd’s contract with Rapid runs through the end of the 2015 season, meaning that if Rapid want to make a profit off his transfer, the best time to sell Boyd would be this summer. Otherwise, Boyd could leave on a free transfer in 2015.
Boyd has made nine appearances for the USMNT in his career and was a member of the 30-man preliminary World Cup roster before being one of seven players cut from the final squad.
What do you think of this report? Do you think this is a good move for Boyd? Would you like to see him playing in a top division? Do you see RB Leipzig moving up to the Bundesliga soon?
