KENYA BROWN - Tuesday, January 24, 2017
Terrence Boyd will be looking to earn his way into the starting lineup for SV Darmstadt as the team announced on Tuesday that he has signed with them until June 2018.
The 25-year-old joins the team after spending two and a half years at RB Leipzig.
Boyd came through the youth ranks at Hertha Berlin before moving on to Borussia Dortmund, where he played primarily with their reserve team. He would catch the attention of teams after moving to Austria where he played with Rapid Vienna. His two seasons with the team saw his score 37 goals in 80 appearances.
RB Leipzig, who were then in the 2.Bundesliga, would then sign the Bremen-born forward in the summer of 2014. He made his debut for the team in October before going down with an ACL injury in December. After two years of trying to recover from various injuries and going through rehab, Boyd made his return to the team but found it difficult to break into the starting line-up.
The move to Darmstadt should give him the chance to return to the field and hopefully earn a recall to the US national team.
"I am delighted that the transfer to Darmstadt 98 worked out and I want to immediately tackle it to make the impossible possible," said Boyd in a statement on the team's website.
Darmstadt has their work cut out for them in the league as they currently sit at the bottom of the standings with nine points.
Boyd will have first chance to see action for the team when they face FC Köln on Saturday.
