It looks that way.

Oft-injured USMNT striker Terrence Boyd could be following in the footsteps of so many of his fellow national team teammates and coming to Major League Soccer this winter.

After several seasons of stuggling with knee injuries, it appears as if he’s about to trade in the Bundesliga reserves for MLS.

According to ESPN’s Taylor Twellman, who has a fantastically stellar track record of accurately reporting American transfers, Boyd will join the New York Red Bulls on loan for their upcoming season.

Boyd’s current club, RB Leipzig is owned by Red Bull, who also operate RBNY among other clubs around Europe and South America. This move makes sense on that front as he’s not getting any playing time with the Leipzig first team and could use a change of scenery now that he’s reportedly fit and ready to play.

The Red Bulls still have one of the league’s best goal scorers in Bradley Wright-Phillips, but having someone like Boyd who could play off of him or spell him in certain matches could be a good situation for the striker.

What do you think of this news? Is it time for Boyd to come to MLS and try and get his career back on track?
