US forward Terrence Boyd joins Rapid Vienna

United States forward Terrence Boyd is joining Austrian club

Rapid Vienna from Borussia Dortmund.

The Bundesliga champion says the 21-year-old Boyd has agreed a

three-year deal with Vienna. It did not give details about the

transfer fee.

Boyd scored 20 goals and set up five more for Dortmund’s reserve

team after joining from Hertha Berlin’s second team last year.

Dortmund youth coordinator Lars Ricken says ”Today he’s playing

for the U.S. national team. It’s further proof that you can have

excellent prospects through hard work with our second team.”

Boyd, the son of an American serviceman and a German mother,

made his international debut against Italy on Feb. 29.
