MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] After being rebuffed in his bid to play in the English Premier League, Juan Agudelo will hope to emulate the success of Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore in the Dutch Eredivisie, where he will play for FC Utrecht.

The former New England Revolution striker, who tweeted the news on Sunday, signed as a free agent with Stoke, which in turn loaned him out to Utrecht for the remainder of the 2013-14 season. Agudelo, 21, became a free agent after the 2013 season, his fourth in MLS. He began his career at the Red Bulls before moving to Chivas USA and then the Revs, where he enjoyed an excellent season.


Utrecht is in the midst of a three-game losing streak in the Eredivisie, having dropped to ninth place after 19 games. It has a very young team, fielding 10 players aged 21 or younger this season.

Bradley (Heerenveen in 2006-2008) and Altidore (AZ in 2011-2013) both had great stints in the Netherlands before moving on to bigger clubs.

Aron Johannsson leads all American players abroad with 19 goals this season for AZ.
