With the winter transfer period in full swing, we are starting to see plenty of movement involving MLS players as well as Americans making moves to and around Europe.

Here are a few updates on MLS and Americans Abroad player moves:

Chicago Fire defender Gonzalo Segares has long been counted as a player on the move from MLS, now a destination has been identified. SBI alumnus and Chicago Tribune writer Sam Stejskal is reporting that Segares is set for a move to Cypriot club Apollon FC.

American defender Zak Whitbread has been sidelined all season due to a hip injury that kept him from leaving Millwall. Now he looks set to finally leave, with a move to Norwich City being reported.

Former D.C. United and Columbus Crew defender/midfielder Ryan Miller has secured a contract with Swedish club Halmstads BK, Miller's agent told SBI. That's the same club where Freddie Ljungberg began his playing career and where Fulham manager Roy Hodgson began his coaching career.

The New York Red Bulls' reconstruction project has officially begun, with the club signing Costa Rican defender Roy Miller. Capable of playing any position in a defensive back four, Miller is the first signing by new Red Bulls general manager Erik Soler.

We will look to keep you updated on all MLS and Americans Abroad transfer movement as it happens. For now, feel free to share your thoughts on these moves in the comments section below.


  1. Whats with all the Chicago ripping on here lol Guys our league is in session in the summer for the most part. And Chicago is by far the best city in the U.S. that I’ve been to come summer time. So April sucks but the fall it is the best to play in. I dunno. Its my guess he went for the money being that the MLS isn’t done with their CBA yet. Sad to see him go though from my beloved Fire. I’d bet my first born child on it which maybe already born somewhere 🙂

  2. you’re debate is irrelavant, as we’re going by perception here. Cyprus is way under the radar as far as scouts looking that way, bring all the stas you want but is the truth. MLS is probably better as far as infrastructure go but we’re perceived by the rest of the world as a weak league hece why we’re ranked 46. Having said that I can’t find Cyprus in this leauge ranking.

    check it out for yoursel i don’t see Sweeden Cyprus in the top 100
