USMNT's Gale Agbossoumonde Apparently Headed To 2. Bundesliga

The sordid tale of 19-year-old American Gale Agbossoumonde took another interesting turn on Tuesday when he was apparently loaned out to 2. Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt. Agbossoumonde's contract is still owned by Brazilian agency Traffic Sports. Since signing a 3.5-year deal in 2009, Boss, as he's commonly known, has played for in various leagues around the world, never for very long.

Among his stops have been Miami FC, then of USSF Division 2; Sporting Braga, a Portuguese team where he never made a league appearance; and, most recently, with Swedish side Djurgården. There had been rumors that Bundesliga side FC Koln had been interested in purchasing his rights, but nothing has since materialized.

A move to the Germany's second division could be a positive for Boss. Many consider him to be one of the more physically gifted players in the United States' player pool, and he has already made one senior team appearance. Assuming the rumors are true, Eintracht could offer him his first chance at extended playing time.
