American winger Joe Gyau is transferring from Borussia Dortmund’s reserve team to German third division club Sonnenhof Großaspach, the player’s father confirmed to Steven Goff on Monday.

Gyau, 24, joined Dortmund in 2014 and appeared one time for the first team while battling many injury problems. Unfortunately he was never able to reach his top form again after suffering a knee injury in his second ever USMNT cap against Ecuador on October 10, 2014.

You may be unfamiliar with Sonnenhof Großaspach, but lucky for you, I just so happen to be the third most knowledgeable non-German expert on Sonnenhof Großaspach on the planet. Here are some facts about Joe Gyau’s new club straight from my memory bank:

  • Sonnenhof Großaspach is based in Aspach, Baden-Württemberg.
  • Sonnenhof Großaspach plays at the Mechatronik Arena, which holds roughly 10,000 supporters.
