Augsburg sign USA international

FC Augsburg have completed the signing of USA international Michael Parkhurt from Danish side FC Nordsjaelland.

The USA international, currently coached by Jürgen Klinsmann participated in this season’s UEFA Champions League.

Michael Parkhurst has signed a deal with Augsburg through to 30 June 2015. He had this to say about his move to Germany:

“I’m looking forward to playing at FC Augsburg and in the Bundesliga. I’d like to do my bit so that we can achieve our aim of staying up in the second half of the season. I watched the game against Bayern Munich at the SGL arena and despite the defeat I was impressed with the fantastic atmosphere. That’s why I can hardly wait to get out there and play myself.”

Michael Parkhurst started his career back home with New England Revolution before moving to Denmark in 2008 where he won the league last season. He has 15 caps for the USA national team.
