A young U.S. Men’s National Team prospect is off to a club where several Americans have enjoyed a good amount of success.
After a rough six months at Bournemouth in the English Premier League, Emerson Hyndman has signed a loan deal with Rangers in the Scottish Premier League. The move comes just a few days after Hyndman made a rare appearance for Bournemouth in the FA Cup third round against Millwall. Saturday’s start was one of just three cup appearances the midfielder made while with Eddie Howe’s side.
Hyndman’s switch to Bournemouth from Fulham in the summer was supposed to be a step in the right direction for the grandson of former FC Dallas manager Schellas Hyndman, but he never found a position in the first team. The lack of playing time also dropped him down the midfield depth chart on the international level.
Hyndman has made a pair of senior-team appearances for the USMNT, with the last one coming in May against Puerto Rico. He was also the captain of the U.S. U-20 World Cup team in New Zealand in 2015.
