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 to

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 coming 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 as a substitute against Italy on Feb.
