The USMNT goalkeeper pool has typically been a strength for the team, but since the retirement of Tim Howard, a clear no. 1 has so far been fairly cloudy. Zack Steffen has been the top option for manager Gregg Berhalter, but Ethan Horvath has a claim to the role also.
The no. 2 keeper stepped up when Steffen went down with an injury in the Nations League final and saved a penalty to secure the win for the USMNT. Horvath is an intriguing option for the starting role, but his time on his club side Club Brugge has seen him in an out of the starting lineup.
However, he is out of contract and looking for a new club. This is a great chance for him to find a team he can earn more starts with and further develop as he enters his prime. Rumors out of Voetbal Primeur are linking Horvath with a move to Huddersfield Town.
The English club struggled badly last year finishing in 20th in the Championship. As they look to rebuild, Horvath may find a chance to provide a solid foundation in goal for next season.
