BOYD JOINS RAPID VIENNA
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, June 11, 2012
US national team forward Terrence Boyd has left Borussia Dotrmund after completing his transfer to Austrian Bundesliga club Rapid Vienna

"Indeed Terrence will play next season for Rapid Vienna," Borussia Dortmund press officer Josef Schneck told YA on Tuesday.

Boyd, 21, had a strong season last year for Dortmund's U-23 team scoring 20 goals in 32 games. His performance was a big reason why their U-23 team was promoted out of Germany's Regionalliga and into the 3.Liga.

Despite not making a first team appearance for Dortmund's top team, the German-born Boyd has become a fixture for the US national team in 2012 where he has four caps. On Saturday night against Antigua and Barbuda in the first World Cup, Boyd entered into the game as a second half substitute and became cap-tied to the United States.

Rapid Vienna finished in second place in the Austrian Bundesliga in 2011/12 and will play in the Europa League.
