KITCHEN MOVES TO RANDERS
EXTRA TIME
KENYA BROWN - Wednesday, July 5, 2017
US midfielder Perry Kitchen finally ended his months-long nightmare in Scotland as it was reported on Wednesday that he has signed with Danish Superliga team Randers FC from Hearts.

The 25-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the team.

Kitchen started last season on a high as he was a main figure in Hearts' first team. This eventually led to him being appointed captain. However, when previous head coach Robbie Neilson left to join MK Dons in England's League One Kitchen's role dramatically diminished under new coach Ian Cathro. He was ultimately stripped of the captaincy in February.

The midfielder will be joining a Randers team that have employed fellow Americans Charlie Davies and Lee Ngyuen in the past. They finished in seventh place in the standings last season.

"I'm really looking forward to getting started. I had a really good time at Hearts, but the move to Randers FC was a really good opportunity for me, at the right time," said Kitchen in a statement on Randers' website.

Kitchen will have to get adjusted quickly to his new surroundings as Randers will start their season on July 15 with a game against Sonderjyske.
