Perry Kitchen has found a home, but it’s reportedly not in the U.S.
The 24-year-old midfielder did not agree to a new contract with D.C. United in December, and has allegedly agreed to sign a deal with Scottish side Heart of Midlothian. According to the Scottish Sun, an official announcement from the club is reportedly expected to come on Wednesday.
Heart of Midlothian, more commonly known as Hearts, is one of the top clubs in the Scottish Premiership. The club currently sits comfortably in third on the league table behind Aberdeen in second and Celtic in first.
Kitchen most recently took part in the U.S. Men’s National Team’s annual winter camp, making one substitute appearance over the course of two games. Overall, Kitchen has been capped three times, with one of his appearances coming against rival Mexico in April 2015.
The former U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team player has spent the past five years with D.C. United, scoring 10 goals and providing 10 assists in 167 regular-season and postseason appearances.
