U.S. U-20 national team defender Gale Agbossoumonde is on his way to Europe, becoming one of the first members of the U-20 World Cup side to secure a deal abroad.
According to Yanks Abroad, the Miami FC defender is heading to Portuguese league leaders Sporting Braga on a six-month loan deal. Braga holds an option to buy at the end of his loan spell. Rumors of a move have persisted since November, but a deal looks to be in place.
The 18-year-old has been with training with Braga since the end of December, the article reports, and will at first be a part of the youth team at the club. However, that doesn't mean he won't make any appearances for the first team, as the Portuguese league is set to resume this week after winter break. Braga is currently tied for the league lead in Portugal with Benfica.
What do you think of Agbossoumonde's move? Think he'll be able to engineer a permanent move to Braga?
