Americans Abroad transfer roundup: Carter-Vickers, Gioacchini and more


The European transfer window deadline came and went on Tuesday and a flurry of moves involving Americans grabbed the headlines.

A half-dozen U.S. men’s national team players and prospects completed moves, though not every player that had been linked to a potential summer move wound up making one. Weston McKennie wound up staying at Juventus, DeAndre Yedlin is staying at Galatasaray and Reggie Cannon did not leave Boavista.

The Cannon situation was one of the more high-profile ones given the widely-known fact the USMNT fullback wanted to make a move. Sources tell SBI that Cannon came very close to a loan move English League Championship side Fulham FC, but Fulham and Boavista were unable to finalize the necessary paperwork in time to get the deal done.

As for the Americans who did successfully secure new club situations, here is a rundown of the Americans players who are on the way to new clubs:

Chris Richards to Hoffenheim

The USMNT centerback prospect is heading back to Hoffenheim, where he enjoyed a successful 11-match stint as a starter on loan last season.

Matthew Hoppe to Mallorca

After being linked to a handful of English Premier League clubs, Hoppe settles in with newly-promoted La Liga side Mallorca.

Cameron Carter-Vickers to Celtic

Another loan beckons for Carter-Vickers, though this time the 23-year-old central defender will not be playing in the English League Championship. He will instead be heading to Scottish giants Celtic.

Another Gold Cup player to secure a move, Gioacchini will make the jump from Ligue 2 to Ligue 1 as he joins Montpellier on a loan with an option to buy.

Erik Palmer-Brown to ESTAC Troyes

After spending last season in Austria on loan, Palmer-Brown continues his Manchester City loan tour with a stop in Ligue 1, where he joins a Troyes side off to a poor start to the new season.

Jack DeVries to Venezia

The Philadelphia Union academy product is the latest talent from the Union pipeline to move overseas, securing a loan to Serie A side Venezia, though he will be playing with the club’s Primavera side.
