Tyler Adams (RB Leipzig)
After sitting for nearly the entire first half with an adductor injury, Adams started the second half of the Bundesliga season by logging 86 minutes in a 3-1 victory over Union Berlin. The defensive midfielder nearly had an assist on a perfectly weighted through ball to Patrik Schick only for the striker to be denied by the outstretched leg of the keeper. Adams wasn’t directly involved in any of the three goals, but he did pass at an 84 percent clip and win three aerials on the day. It’s a good time for Adams to be back with
John Brooks (Wolfsburg)
It was a quiet break for Brooks, who returned to the Wolfsburg starting XI this week, but the match was one to forget as the backline conceded three in a 3-1 loss to Koln. Brooks wasn’t directly responsible for any of the goals, one of which was off a terrible pass from his center back partner, but he also wasn’t in position to make stops on either of the other chances, both of which were headed goals from set pieces. Wolfsburg stumbled into the break, sitting mid-table in an up-and-down season, and that trend has continued.
Weston McKennie (Schalke)
McKennie is back in training with Schalke after sustaining a dislocated left shoulder late in the first half of the season. He isn’t expected back until February, but joining up with the team during the break is a positive sign. Schalke beat Borussia Monchengladbach 2-0 and sit fifth but are only three points off second. The battle for Champions League spots in Germany is heating up.
Alfredo Morales (Fortuna Dusseldorf)
Morales was yanked after 71 minutes of Fortuna’s 1-0 loss to Werder Bremen in their return to action in the German top flight. Morales was quiet during his time on the pitch save for a stinging effort from 18 yards that had to be pushed over by Jiri Pavlenka. It’s a tough loss for Fortuna to swallow as Werder jumped them in the table, knocking Dusseldorf into 17th and an automatic relegation spot. It’s certainly not a good way to start the second half.
Zack Steffen (Fortuna Dusseldorf, on loan from Manchester City)
Nor is being injured. In a big surprise, Steffen was left out of the Fortuna squad against Werder Bremen. The keeper has a knee injury, and it’s unclear how severe the problem is. Steffen was arguably Fortuna’s best player in the first half of the season and one of the only reasons they aren’t sitting in last place. His replacement Florian Kastenmeier was responsible for Werder’s only goal, too, being out of position on a cross and allowing an attacker’s header to bounce off of him and into the net for an own goal. It’s worth keeping an eye on Steffen’s status as the second half gets going.
Josh Sargent (Werder Bremen)
Coming back from injury, Sargert started and was like Morales also removed for a sub, lasting 86 minutes in Werder’s aforementioned win. He didn’t record a single shot in the contest but won a game-high seven aerials. He appears to be the top healthy choice at the club right now, and he did help his stock a bit over the break, scoring twice in a friendly win over Hannover a week ago. Sargent has seven Bundesliga starts this season and has come off the bench five other times, so he’s getting a decent share of the run.
Christian Pulisic (Chelsea)
It wasn’t a good winter period for either Pulisic or Chelsea, with the winger picking up an adductor injury –– a la Tyler Adams –– and being ruled out until February. He picked up that injury in a 1-1 draw with Brighton, being removed after 66 minutes in that one, and his only other action was a second half, substitute appearance against Southampton in which the Blues lost 2-0. He then reportedly exacerbated the problem in training. It’s unlikely he appears until mid-February, although Frank Lampard doesn’t seem to think it’s a long-term injury for the 21-year-old. Despite their wobbly form, Chelsea do still sit fourth with a five-point cushion over Manchester United in fifth.
DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle)
In a similar vein, Yedlin’s busy winter schedule was also cut short as he suffered a hand injury in a 3-0 loss to Leicester, a game he was subbed onto before halftime due to another injury. At the start of the fast run of fixtures, Yedlin was also subbed into an eventual loss against Manchester United, coming on in the 63rd minute with his side down 4-1 already. He then proceeded to start at right wing back in a 2-1 loss to Everton before the aforementioned knock he picked up. What’s interesting is that after the injury was reported against Leicester, he still went the distance a couple days later in an FA Cup draw with Rochdale (shining as one of the best players on the pitch) before again being ruled out with a hand injury and sitting for the past three matches. Newcastle sit in 12th place currently.
Timothy Weah (Lille)
Weah’s status is still unclear, but he is in training with Lille. The French side played four games in the winter weeks, advancing two rounds in the French Cup and one round in the Coupe de la Ligue and losing a Ligue 1 fixture. The loss dropped them down to fifth place in the league in what could be a narrow race for France’s third and final Champions League spot.
Turkish Super Lig
Tyler Boyd (Besiktas)
In four competitive matches since our last report, Boyd was twice subbed into fixtures for Besiktas, coming on in the middle of a wild 3-2 cup loss to Erzurum BB and then appearing late in a 4-1 Super Lig win over Genclerbirligi. He also played in a pair of friendlies for the side during the break. There was also an unsubstantiated rumor that he was a target of Championship side Sheffield Wednesday, but there’s been no evidence to back up that claim. If there is smoke there, it will become a fire soon enough.
Sergino Dest (Ajax)
Dest did not appear for Ajax in their return to Eredivisie action this week. The 19-year-old watch from the subs’ bench as side beat Sparta Rotterdam 2-1. Dest also did not appear in either of Ajax’s friendlies over the break as he left their training camp early, telling the club that he preferred to train at home due to the ongoing U.S. tensions in the region. Ajax are six points clear in the Eredivisie and face Getafe in the Europa League Round of 32 after being bounced from Champions League action.
Ethan Horvath (Club Brugge)
There are rumors that Horvath could be off this window, though nothing has materialized as of yet. As such, he took up his usual spot in Brugge’s backup keeper spot in their last game of 2019, but he wasn’t in the squad for their 2020 opener this past weekend. We’ll keep an eye on the situation.
Bobby Wood (Hamburg)
The 2. Bundesliga is still on its winter break. Hamburg sit in second place, three points off the top. Wood had a challenging first half of the campaign and may yet find a new home this window, though his high wages make it difficult for Hamburg to move the striker. Again, we’ll keep monitoring.
Duane Holmes (Derby County)
Nobody on our List has been busier over the past few weeks than our Championship stalwart quartet. Holmes has made headlines as one of the focal points in the Derby midfield that has won or drawn all six matches since our last update, climbing to 15th in the table and advancing in the FA Cup. He’s been involved in every game, going 90 in the league matches and coming on as a sub in the cup, and he scored his first goal of the campaign in brilliant and
Matt Miazga (Reading, on loan from Chelsea)
Miazga returned from injury as a substitute on New Year’s Day in a win over Fulham, then played 90 minutes in an FA Cup draw at Blackburn, but those are the only minutes he’s gotten over a busy period of fixtures. The center back has been on the bench most games that he hasn’t played, so he’s in the squad at least. Still, it looks like he’ll have to earn his minutes over the second half.
Tim Ream (Fulham)
Ream has played every minute of Fulham’s five Championship fixtures since Boxing Day and missed out on their FA Cup win over Aston Villa. He’s had some shaky performances, most notably in a 3-3 draw with Luton in which the 32-year-old wasn’t good, but he’s also been solid in three 1-0 wins that have helped the Cottagers remain ahead of the chasing pack behind the top two in the Championship (they only trail second-place Leeds by four points, however). Ream may be getting up there, but he doesn’t look like he’s losing his job any time soon: he’s still started every league match since the opening day.
Antonee Robinson (Wigan Athletic)
Likewise, Robinson has also maintained his lengthy league start streak, which dates back all the way to the beginning of the season, and he also got a few FA Cup minutes too in a loss to Leicester. In the league, Wigan have been uneven and still sit in 23rd, but Robinson has continued to impress as one of the Latics’ best performers. Those showings have apparently garnered the eyes of one very famous and attractive club, as AC Milan reportedly have the 22-year-old lined up as their next left back if the sale of Ricardo Rodriguez goes through, as it’s expected to. It would be a fascinating move for the youngster, who would be there to serve as understudy to arguably Milan’s best player in Theo Hernandez but would get outstanding training in tactics and may have an opportunity to improve his defensive game. If this move goes through, it will be one of the wildest for an American player ever.
In Eintracht’s return from the winter break this past weekend, Chandler started and provided the match-winning moment, heading home Frankfurt’s winner in the 62nd minute of a 2-1 win at Hoffenheim. It’s a terrific start to 2020 for the 29-year-old, who seems fully healthy after his lengthy injury layoff, having been back in the squad and in form for more than a month now.
Fabian Johnson (Borussia Monchengladbach, Bundesliga)
Johnson was an unused substitute in Monchengladbach’s 2-0 defeat to Schalke which began the second half of their campaign. The Foals sit in third place in the Bundesliga but are just two points ahead of fifth-place Schalke.
Geoff Cameron (QPR, Championship)
Since our last update on Christmas Eve, Cameron has been awfully hard at work for QPR, starting in five of six matches and going the distance in four, including three very good victories: 6-1 over Cardiff on New Year’s Day, 5-1 over Swansea in the FA Cup, and 1-0 over second-place Leeds. The veteran defender has helped Rangers jump up to 14th in the table, but they haven’t been consistent enough to threaten the top six (though they’re only seven points out of a playoff spot).
Cameron Carter-Vickers (Stoke City, Championship, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur -> returned from loan)
As we reported before the break, Carter-Vickers returned from his loan at Stoke and is now awaiting a decision from parent club Tottenham about whether to sell him permanently or send him on another loan spell. Derby is the team most consistently linked with the center back at this moment, but with Spurs reportedly looking for £4 million for him, it’s unclear what the future holds for the 22-year-old Carter-Vickers.
Luca de la Torre (Fulham, Championship)
De la Torre has been in and around the Fulham squad throughout the Holiday period, and he made two short substitute appearances, in a 2-1 league defeat to Reading and an FA Cup win over Premier League side Aston Villa by the same margin. There are reports out of Sweden that he is a target of Allsvenskan champions Djurgardens, with the club’s sporting director saying the club was in discussions with the midfielder. It would probably be a positive to see the 21-year-old finally move on from Fulham in search of the first-team playing time he’s been starved of throughout his time at Craven Cottage; he’s still young, and he remains an exciting player, so it’s time for him to start playing regularly.
Eric Lichaj (Hull City, Championship)
Lichaj played 90 minutes in all five of Hull’s Championship matches during the break, captaining the Tigers as they won two and lost three. The fullback is a week-in, week-out starter, and he has played reasonably well despite the defeats as Hull’s biggest problems lie in attack rather than defense. Hull sit in 12th place, six behind sixth-place Swansea.
Jann-Christopher George (Jahn Regensburg, 2. Bundesliga)
While the Bundesliga has returned from its Winter Break, the 2. Bundesliga has not. The second division doesn’t restart until January 28. Regensburg currently sit in seventh place but are only five points behind second and a promotion spot.
Julian Green (Greuther Fuerth, 2. Bundesliga)
Green is on the recovery trail from an injury that ended his first half early. He was expected to be out until February, and it’s unclear whether he’s ahead of schedule or will indeed return next month. Fuerth need Green, sitting a point and a place behind Regensburg.
Kevin Lankford (St. Pauli, 2. Bundesliga)
St. Pauli are still on their Winter Break. They sit in 11th place at the interval.
Sebastian Soto (Hannover, 2. Bundesliga)
Hannover too are still on their Winter Break. They sit in 13th place at the interval. Soto was harshly and publicly criticized by his manager over the break after a poor performance in a friendly; it’s feeling more and more like his time at the club is reaching its conclusion.
Andrija Novakovich (Frosinone, Serie B)
Novakovich came on as a substitute in one of Frosinone’s three matches since our last update and rode the bench in the other two. Frosinone lost one and drew two of those and sit in eighth place in Serie B.
Niko Gioacchini (Caen, Ligue 2)
Gioacchini started twice and rode the bench once over the Holidays, and he made an impact in scoring Caen’s first goal of 2020 in their 2-1 Cup win over Guichen. However, Caen followed that up with a league loss to Lorient and a 5-0 Cup drubbing at the hands of Montpellier, during which Gioacchini was an unused substitute,
Haji Wright (VVV-Venlo, Eredivisie)
Wright was a late substitute in Venlo’s first game of 2020, a 1-1 draw with PSV. He did score in a friendly over the winter break, which could be an important moment for Wright, who doesn’t have a goal or assist yet for VVV..
Brendan Hines-Ike (Kortrijk, Jupiler League)
Hines-Ike was a stoppage-time substitute in Kortirjk’s last game of 2019 before going the distance in their 2020 opener, a 2-0 loss to Sint-Truiden.
Kenny Saief (Anderlecht, Jupiler League)
Saief remained out of the Anderlecht squad through the winter break. He seems very likely to move this month, with clubs in Israel reportedly interested. We will continue to monitor the situation.
Phillipe Sandler (Anderlecht, Jupiler League, on loan from Manchester City)
Sandler is out after undergoing knee surgery in mid-December. The defender is expected to be out until mid-February.
Erik Palmer-Brown (Austria Wien, Austrian Bundesliga, on loan from Manchester City)
The Austrian Bundesliga is still on winter break until February. Austria Wien sit in seventh place.
Shaq Moore (Tenerife, Segunda Division)
Moore has played in all four of Tenerife’s matches since our last update, starting twice and entering as a sub twice. He tallied an assist in one of those matches and scored a penalty in a shootout victory in the Copa del Rey. Tenerife sit 17th in the second tier.
Jonathan Amon (Nordsjaelland, Danish Super League)
The Danish Super League is still on its winter break. Nordsjaelland sit seventh in the league.
Christian Cappis (Hobro, Danish Super League)
The Danish Super League is still on its winter break. Hobro are in 12th place in the league. Cappis took advantage of that winter break by joining the USMNT for its January camp, one of two European-based players to join the senior side this month. It’s the 20-year-old’s first callup.
Emmanuel Sabbi (Hobro, Danish Super League)
As expected, Sabbi is on the move. However, he won’t leave Hobro until the end of the season, when he’ll join Odense Boldklub (OB) on a free transfer. OB is only four places above Hobro, sitting in ninth, but it’s a much larger club that traditionally competes for trophies, and Sabbi will be expected to help with that quest. For now, though, he’ll spend the rest of the season hoping to help keep Hobro out of relegation trouble.
Yosef Samuel (Hobro, Danish Super League)
Niko Hamalainen (Kilmarnock, Scottish Premiership, on loan from QPR)
Hamalainen played three matches for Kilmarnock over the holidays, going the distance in all three as Killie lost 1-0 twice in the league and won a 6-0 blowout in the Scottish Cup.
Matt Polster (Rangers, Scottish Premiership)
Polster hasn’t played for Rangers in their last three matches, although he was on the bench for their cup win over Stranraer. There are widespread rumors that Polster is looking for another club in Scotland where he can earn consistent minutes, and a move could well materialize this month.
Gboly Ariyibi (Panetolikos, Greek Super League)
Ariyibi hasn’t been in a Panetolikos matchday squad since December 22, missing the last five games. There’s no public reason for the absence, but injury is a decent bet as there aren’t any transfer rumors around the winger at the moment.
Romain Gall (Malmo, Allsvenskan)
The Allsvenskan season is over. Malmo finished second. They will face Wolfsburg in the Round of 32.
Aron Johannsson (Hammarby, Allsvenskan)
Hammarby’s season is over. The side finished in third and qualified for the Europa League first qualifying round next year.
Jonathan Klinsmann (St. Gallen, Swiss Super League)
The Swiss Super League is on winter break until January 25. St. Gallen are in third place in the league. The side sold its starting keeper, Dejan Stojanovic, to Middlesbrough last week; it will be interesting to see if Klinsmann is given the chance to step up following the departure.
Lynden Gooch (Sunderland, League 1)
After returning to health in mid-December, Gooch went on an incredible run of form over the Christmas period which is still ongoing. He’s started all six of Sunderland’s games since December 26 and has reeled off three goals and an assist, coming in four separate Sunderland victories (they’ve also drawn two games for a total of a current seven-game unbeaten run). He scored a brilliant curling left-footed goal at Doncaster (starts at 15 seconds in this video), was involved in two against Lincoln (forcing an own goal and scoring a goal — see both starting at 31 seconds in this video), assisted the opener in a thrashing of Wycombe (starts with the first clip in this video), and most impressively struck in the final 15 minutes with a stunning winner in a 1-0 victory at MK Dons, cutting inside onto his left foot, beating a man, and driving an unsaveable effort that dipped into the far corner of the net (starts at 1:25 in this video).
Charlie Kelman (Southend United, League 1)
Kelman has played in Southend’s last four matches, the first three as a sub and the last as a starter. He’s made his impact felt, too, scoring twice in those four games. In the second, Kelman came on in the 75th minute and proceeded to earn and score a stoppage time penalty (the play begins at 1:23 in this video) to steal a 1-1 draw at Wimbledon. After getting another 15 minutes in a scoreless draw, Kelman then needed just 11 to get Southend on the board in an eventual 2-1 win over Accrington, powering home a fantastic strike from 20 yards (the first clip in this video). Back healthy, the 18-year-old is starting to make his mark.
Matthew Olosunde (Rotherham United, League 1)
Rotherham have rolled over the holidays, winning five in a row in League 1 play to move into a tie atop the table with Wycombe. Olosunde has been a crucial part, playing 90 minutes in all five of those matches, as well as their one stumble, a 3-2 FA Cup loss to Hull City. That match was a humbling one for Olosunde, who was partially or largely responsible on all three goals conceded (and also was credited for an assist on a throw in thanks to a teammate’s wonder goal - see highlights of that wild contest here). Still, things are looking up for Rotherham, and it’s looking like Olosunde may be playing in the Championship next season.
Giles Phillips (Wycombe Wanderers, League 1, on loan from QPR)
Phillips has had a very rough go of late as Wycombe have lost four of six and thrown away their lead atop the table. The defender has started in four of those six contests, but he’s been poor, to be honest. The two most recent have been the two worst, as Phillips was hauled off after 29 minutes with Wanderers down 3-0 in a match they lost 4-0 to Sunderland following a horrific showing before being sent off controversially on 21 minutes in an eventual 4-0 loss to Peterborough (first clip in this video) for a push on an attacker deemed to be in on goal. It’s been a harsh few weeks for the 22-year-old, who will need to dust himself off when he does get back into the lineup.
Ian Harkes (Dundee United, Scottish Championship)
Harkes played in two and missed two of Dundee United’s last four matches. His side remains comfortably atop the Scottish Championship table and is still in the Scottish Cup.
As we’ve gone a few weeks without an update, this is probably the biggest Youth Update of the season on this site. That’s a good thing, because there’s been a lot of good happening over the past few weeks. First and foremost, we’ve had the sudden arrivals of two teenage prospects, both of whom have made competitive debuts over the past few weeks. First was Aston Villa forward Indiana Vassilev, who has played in Villa’s last four games as a substitute as the club deals with a massive injury crisis. He’s made an impact, too, as Villa have turned around two results late on after Vassilev’s arrival in his two Premier League appearances. They’ve signed a new striker to deal with the problem, but the 18-year-old Vassilev has nonetheless made an impression on his manager and seems likely to remain in the first-team picture while also getting some minutes at youth levels to stay fresh. The same can be said of Borussia Dortmund’s 17-year-old starlet Gio Reyna, who became the youngest American to play in the Bundesliga when
Uly Llanez also made a significant debut, as he joined Christian Cappis as the only Americans called into Gregg Berhalter’s senior national team. It’s the first callup for the 18-year-old Wolfsburg winger. There was also a U-20 camp, and that team had a number of European-based players in it: Sepulveda, Ian Hoffmann (Karlsruhe), Cameron Harper (Celtic), Chituru Odunze (Leicester), Stuart Ritchie (Hoffenheim), and Leon Flach, an 18-year-old Texas-born, Germany-raised midfielder playing regular minutes for St. Pauli’s U-19s in the U-19 Bundesliga. He’ll be added to our Youth list below.
In other news regarding players on our list below, Owen Otasowie has yet to play with Wolves again after his Europa League debut, but he did recently sign a new deal with the club, signing until 2022. A handful of players in Germany — Travian Sousa (Hamburg), Jalen Hawkins (Ingolstadt), Chris Richards (Bayern Munich), and Nick Taitague (Schalke), finally back healthy — spent the winter breaks training and playing with their club’s first teams, as did Richie Ledezma, who still seems very close to a debut for PSV. Two players on our list below were sold from Bundesliga clubs to second-tier German sides as Timothy Tillman left Bayern Munich for Greuther Fuerth and Sidney Freide left Hertha Berlin for Wehen Wiesbaden. Both should be given a real chance to play for their respective clubs, so the moves could prove beneficial to kick-start the careers of the pair of 21-year-olds. Another on our list, Michael Harding (Northampton), will leave it temporarily as he joins sixth-tier side Kettering Town on loan for the rest of the season. There were also goals galore at the youth level, with Folarin Balogun (Arsenal), Ledezma (twice, including a stunner), Otasowie, Vassilev (twice for the U-23s), Reading’s Augustus McGiff (twice for the U-19s), and Ajax’s Alex Mendez (a penalty for Jong Ajax, his first professional goal) all finding the net. One player who was on our list previously and now won’t return for the time being is Keaton Parks, who was sold by Benfica to MLS side NYCFC earlier this month. The final bit of news on someone on our list is that former U-17 World Cup player Blaine Ferri had his contract terminated by Greuther Fuerth for “unprofessionalism”; we will see if his name pops up again.
Finally, we go to the rumor mill. There has been one additional completed move to report on, and it’s someone we’ll put onto our Others category right away. Former Colorado Rapids and Orlando City midfielder Dillon Powers, 28, has moved to Dundee United, and he’s already started twice and gone the distance in both (and recorded an assist). He may not be one for the future, but he’s already making an impact in Europe, so we’ll put him on our Others list. There actually isn’t that much else to report on here, somewhat surprisingly. Atlanta United academy player Efrain Morales, a US Youth National Team player at multiple levels, is trialing at Manchester United. Toronto FC and one-time USMNT keeper Alex Bono had a training stint at Championship side Barnsley, though there are no reports of any offers. Dynamo Dresden, bottom of the 2. Bundesliga, are reportedly interested in DC United’s Russell Canouse, though that seems like an unlikely move for a player who could probably do much better. Lastly, it seems as though former List member Jordan Siebatcheu, taken off due to his lack of interest in a USMNT callup, has now reconsidered that position. Should he earn and accept a call into the national team at any point in the future, he’ll be added to the List straight away.
