MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD]After just six months in Austria, 19-year-old Josh Gatt is on the move, joining Norwegian first division club Molde FK.

Gatt, who recently trained with the U.S. under-20 national team and scored two goals and set up three more in a 5-0 win over Canada during its December camp in Florida, hails from the Derby County Wolves out of Detroit and was discovered by Altach after touring Europe with an organization named the United States Football Club.

“This is a great step in my career and I’m really excited to be joining Molde FK,” Gatt said. “It was a lifelong dream to become a professional player, and the training and experience I earned with SCR Altach was invaluable."

Gatt scored four goals for Altach's first team, which was second at the winter break in Austria's second division.

Molde, coached by former Manchester United player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, finished 11th in the 2010 Tippeligaen, prospects for foreign talent that it hopes to develop and sell at a profit.

Its roster also includes three players from Senegal, two from Sweden and one each from Brazil, Ivory Coast and Nigeria.

THURSDAY UPDATE: Molde also signed 17-year-old defender Sean Cunningham, another Derby County Wolves product.
