U.S. international Perry Kitchen has joined Danish Superliga side Randers FC on a two year contract.

Kitchen joins Randers on a permanent transfer from Scottish Premier League side Heart of Midlothian F.C. Hearts will not receive compensation for the transfer.

Per Soccer By Ives, when asked about the move Kitchen said:

“I’d like to than Hearts for a great time there. “Unfortunately for me, in the last six months, things went south to say the least and it was in my best interest to get back to enjoying my football. This came up and I think it’s the best opportunity for me at this point. I’m happy to be here.”

Kitchen fell out of favor with new Hearts manager Ian Cathro, who was appointed in December 2016, and ultimately was stripped of his captaincy in February 2017. Kitchen did not feature in Hearts’s last five games of the season.

The defensive midfielder has 5 caps for the United States, but has not been selected since October 2016.

Randers finished seventh in the Danish Superliga last season. It was previously the home of USMNT players Lee Nguyen and Charlie Davies. The team begins its season on July 15th against Sonderjyske.
