[AMERICANS ABROAD] Fabian Johnson is officially headed to Borussia Moenchengladbach next season. The German club confirmed the signing of the 26-year-old German-American from Hoffenheim on a four-year deal.

"Fabian Johnson is a very interesting player who can play attacking or defensive roles on either flank," Gladbach director of sport Max Eberl said. "He comes on a free transfer and we're delighted he's opted to join us."

A free agent like Johnson is free to talk with another club six months before the end of his current contract.

Fabian Johnson, Appearances:
GP/G TEAM (YEARS)
90/4
1860 Munich (2005-09, D2)
16/1 Wolfsburg (2009-11)
75/5 Hoffenheim (2011-14)

ELIASON LANDS IN ICELAND. Former Northwestern star Matt Eliason, known as the "bicycle kick" guy for the highlight-reel goal he scored as a last-minute fill-in in last summer's Messi & Friends exhibition match, has signed with Throttur FC of Iceland's 1. deild karla (second division).

“His attitude and approach to the trial displayed his ambition and determination to succeed, “ Throttur head coach Gregg Ryder said said after a tryout during which Eliason scored a goal. “The main things, which prompted us to sign Matt, are his eye for goal and movement. He is a natural finisher; his first thought is always, ‘Where is the goal?’ I expect big things from Matt. I am very confident, as is he, that he will score goals and contribute to the team’s success.”

Eliason, a former recruited walk-on, is still Northwestern’s all-time leading scorer with 33 goals, along with 82 career points.
