Danny Williams narrowly avoided relegation with German Bundesliga side Hoffenheim, but it looks like he will be playing second-division soccer somewhere after all.

League Championship side Reading FC has signed the U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder, the club announced on Tuesday.

The German-American has spent the last two seasons at Hoffenheim, following a move from SC Freiburg. Last year at Hoffenheim, the 24-year-old scored once in 17 starts, making 21 total appearances in the Bundesliga.

Since 2011, Williams has been a member of the USMNT, earning 12 caps, five of which came in World Cup qualifiers. Originally part of the May/June USMNT camp, head coach Jurgen Klinsmann released Williams due to fitness issues.

What do you make of this news? Surprised he would move to the Championship? Think he should stay at Hoffenheim?
