Report: Atlanta United in talks with Emerson Hyndman

Emerson Hyndman is reportedly in talks with the defending MLS champions.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta United is in discussions with Hyndman over a contract but terms have yet to be finalized. Atlanta United declined to comment on the rumor, according to the report.

Hyndman, 23, is currently with English Premier League side AFC Bournemouth, trying to work his way to first-team minutes under Eddie Howe. Hyndman has only made two senior appearances for Bournemouth in Premier League play and is coming off 15 appearances on-loan last season with Scottish outfit Hibernian.

A former member of FC Dallas’ academy, Hyndman has also spent time with Fulham and on-loan with Rangers. He has won two caps with the U.S. Men’s National Team, after appearing for the U-17’s, U-20’s and U-23’s in the past.

Should the club acquire Hyndman, they will most likely need to make another move to open a spot on the roster. Hector Villalba, Ezequiel Barco, and Kevin Kratz are currently injured for the Five Stripes, who are coming off a 3-2 defeat in Toronto on Wednesday.

The MLS summer transfer window opens on July 9th.


  1. Carleton needs to be gone as Emo brings more than he could ever in his HS party mode. I hope Carleton grows up quick as hur next club!is time is running out. Patience is not a virtue with professional football clubs. Good luck Andrew with your next club!

  2. If Emo plays for the 5 Stripes, there goes any chance for Carleton to play 1st team @ the 10. Pity, Barco, & Hyndman play in that attacking midfield. Carleton has seen minutes @ winger, when he plays for Atl2. I just don’t see a lot 1st team minutes, in the central mid with Atl. He might have to switch teams, to get playing time, like J. Lewis.

    • Carleton was supposed to travel with the squad for Wednesday match with Toronto but showed up at the airport without his passport. Time to get off the hype train.

      • He just got called into the last camp under GGG and plays plays a position that the U.S. needs the most right now as an attacking central midfielder so I see this as a sign that he knows he needs first team mins to play at the international level and help this team.

      • I’m a big fan of letting players mature, but I think, the hype train is on Pomykal, now! Whatever hype from the U17s Carleton had is 2 years removed. Chris Goslin the starting 8, (Durkin-6, Carleton-10), during that cycle, isn’t even playing in the USL, this year, @ least Carleton is on a roster.

      • How the heck do you go to Canada without a passport? Is it the 51st state? His focus isn’t on his livelihood but the lifestyle. Gees man get it together!
