As it was rumored in early December, Ethan Horvath has completed a permanent transfer to Belgian Pro League side Club Brugge.
The USMNT goalkeeper has agreed to a four-and-a-half year deal with the current league leaders that will keep him tied to the club through 2020-21 season.
The 21-year-old joins the Belgian powerhouse from Molde FK in Norway where he began his professional career in 2013 and appeared in 39 matches.
Over the past calendar year, Horvath has made his USMNT debut and has entered the conversation of the future keeper of the No. 1 shirt once Brad Guzan and Tim Howard’s time is up.
The Colorado native made waves in the American soccer community for his standout performances for Molde in the Europa League. He earned a spot in the Europa League Team of the Week in October of 2015 for his 10-save performance in a 1-1 draw against famous Dutch club Ajax.
The Pro League is currently on winter break and will resume play on the 22nd of January as Horvath attempts to win playing time for the perennial title favorites.
Is this a good move for Horvath’s career? Let us know in the comments.
