Romain Gall completes transfer to Malmo


Romain Gall has been tearing up the Swedish Allsvenskan since making the jump from a Third-division club to Sundsvall.

    Would Gall be making TAM/DP level money if he stayed in MLS? I recall his playing time all but disappeared in 2015 after a promising 2014.
