Terrence Boyd has made an impressive start to his U.S. national team career, and now his recent success appears to have translated into a move that could offer him a considerable boost in playing time.

Boyd is set to join Austrian club Rapid Vienna via transfer from Borussia Dortmund, according to an announcement made on the club website on Monday. The transfer, which will include the signing of a three-year deal, will be finalized pending a physical Boyd will take after returning from U.S. national team duty.

Boyd, 21, was a star on the Borussia Dortmund reserve team, scoring 20 goals in the German fourth division with the reserve side. Now he joins a Rapid Vienna team that is poised to compete in the Europa League next season, a club that should offer him steady playing time.

What do you think of this news? Glad to see Boyd will be moving somewhere for steady playing time next season? Think he should have stayed at Dortmund?
