4. AMERICANS ABROAD: Californian Kamani Hill signs with Bundesliga's Wolfsburg; Wolff in Munich

MOST COMMENTED

Californian Kamani Hill, 20, has signed a two-and-a-half year contract with German First Division club Wolfsburg with an option for an additional year.

"He's very far along for his age," said Wolfsburg coach Klaus Augenthaler. "We will do everything we can to make him successful for us."

Augenthaler, 1990 World Cup champion as a player for Germany, was the Bayer Leverkusen coach when Landon Donovan made his ill-fated return to Leverkusen in 2005.

Hill, born and raised in Berkeley, Calif., played youth club ball for Marin United and for Marin FC before playing two seasons (2004 & 2005) at UCLA.

U.S. World Cup veteran and Kansas City attacker Josh Wolff is on trial at German Second Division club Munich 1860, home of compatriot Gregg Berhalter, and may be on the verge of signing.

"He's a great guy," says club general manager Stefan Reuter. "Totally loose and open, like most Americans."

Wolff scored three goals in a practice game last week.
