USMNT Transfers Summer 2021
Josh Sargent Transfer To Norwich City
After spending three years in Werder Bremen’s system, Josh Sargent moved from the recently relegated club to newly promoted Norwich City.

Matthew Hoppe’s transfer came on deadline day when he departed relegated Schalke for Mallorca in LaLiga. The California native has been an exciting prospect for the USMNT after some strong performances in the Gold Cup. It’s suspected that Gregg Berhalter left Hoppe off the latest World Cup qualifying roster to let the forward complete his transfer this summer. With the $3.3 million transfer done, all that’s left is for Hoppe is to score some goals.
Chris Richards Loan To Hoffenheim
Chris Richards will return to Hoffenheim where Bayern Munich loaned the American last February. He became a regular starter for Hoffenheim at the end of the 2020-21 season with 10 straight starts at center back before he missed the last three games with a hamstring injury.
