Tim Ream (Fulham)
Fulham ended the Premier League season in 19th place and were relegated to the Championship. Ream played in 26 league games, starting 25, and did not record a goal or assist. The 31-year-old has joined Gregg Berhalter’s USMNT camp, and he started and played 59 minutes before coming off in Wedensday’s 1-0 friendly defeat to Jamaica. He was also included in the provisional 40-man roster ahead of this summer’s Gold Cup, and was named in Berhalter’s final 23-man squad on Thursday.
Danny Williams (Huddersfield)
Huddersfield ended the Premier League season in last place and were relegated to the Championship. Williams played in five league games, starting one, and did not record a goal or assist. The 30-year-old is now a free agent after his contract with Huddersfield expired, and he will spend the summer looking for his next club.
DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle United)
Newcastle ended the Premier League season in 13th place. Yedlin played in 29 games, starting 28, and he produced a goal and two assists. However, the right back injured his groin in early May, a problem which required surgery and will keep Yedlin out of the Gold Cup.
Cameron Carter-Vickers (Swansea City, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur)
Swansea ended the Championship season in 10th place. Carter-Vickers played in 30 league games, starting 23, and did not record a goal or assist, though he finished the campaign with the best pass completion rate in the division. The 21-year-old was a 71st-minute sub against Jamaica, but despite being in the provisional Gold Cup roster, he didn’t make the 23-man squad. This will be a big offseason for the center back on the club front as he seems highly likely to either spend another season on loan from Tottenham or to leave his boyhood club permanently this summer.
Matt Miazga (Reading, on loan from Chelsea)
Reading ended the Championship season in 20th place. Miazga played in 18 league games, starting all of them and featuring for every minute, and he helped pull the Royals away from danger and to second-tier safety. The center back played 71 minutes against Jamaica, wearing the captain’s armband for the first time, and he is in the Gold Cup squad, where he should feature as a starter. He too looks likely to be sent on another season-long loan by Chelsea when the fall rolls around.
Antonee Robinson (Wigan Athletic, on loan from Everton)
Wigan ended the Championship season in 18th place. Robinson played in 26 league games, starting all of them, and tallied one assist as the Latics also pulled away from the drop zone late. Like Carter-Vickers, Robinson played against Jamaica, starting and going 80 minutes as a left wing-back, but he wasn’t included in the final Gold Cup squad after being on the provisional roster. The 21-year-old looks set to fight for a first-team place with Everton this summer and spoke this week of productive conversations with Toffees boss Marco Silva.
Tyler Adams (RB Leipzig)
Adams played 65 minutes before coming off with Leipzig trailing Bayern Munich 1-0 in the DfB-Pokal final, which they would go on to lose by a 3-0 margin. The midfielder had a relatively quiet match, but it’s noteworthy that Munich added two more goals after he came off. Adams didn’t play against Jamaica, but he is set to join the USMNT setup ahead of the Gold Cup and should feature as one of the team’s key players. In 10 games for Leipzig (eight starts) following his January arrival, Adams tallied two assists and helped RB secure a third-place finish and Champions League football next season.
John Anthony Brooks (Wolfsburg)
Wolfsburg ended the Bundesliga season in sixth place and qualified for next year’s Europa League. Brooks played in 29 league games, starting all of them, and tallied three goals and two assists. The defender suffered a knee ligament injury late in the season, though, and he won’t be joining the USMNT squad this summer for the Gold Cup.
Timmy Chandler (Eintracht Frankfurt)
Eintracht ended the Bundesliga season in seventh place and finished as Europa League semifinalists, though they won’t have any European football to show for it next year. Chandler spent the vast majority of the season on the sidelines due to a knee injury, making just one substitute appearance. He won’t join the USMNT this summer and will instead focus on returning to full health ahead of the start of next year’s Bundesliga campaign.
Aron Johannsson (Werder Bremen)
Bremen ended the Bundesliga season in eighth place. Like Chandler, Johannsson too made just one appearance this year, coming on for the final three minutes of Bremen’s season as he was given a swansong by the club ahead of his summer departure. His next stop is uncertain.
Josh Sargent (Werder Bremen)
Bremen ended the Bundesliga season in eighth place. Sargent made 10 appearances in his first first-team season, starting one game and scoring two league goals while also playing extensively for Bremen’s reserve sides. With multiple forwards departing the club this summer, the 19-year-old should have a chance to take a step forward and see even more time next year. He started and went the distance against Jamaica, but the striker wasn’t included in the Gold Cup squad despite making the provisional roster, so he’ll turn his summer focus to winning a consistent spot in Bremen’s squad.
Monchengladbach ended the Bundesliga season in fifth place and will play in the Europa League next season. Johnson played in 18 league games, starting 11, and scored once. The 31-year-old looks set for another season of Bundesliga football in 2019-20.
Weston McKennie (Schalke)
Schalke ended the Bundesliga season in 14th place and were knocked out of the Champions League in the Round of 16. McKennie played in 24 league games, tallying one goal and four assists, and racked up a goal and an assist in six Champions League matches. The 20-year-old didn’t play against Jamaica but is on the Gold Cup roster.
Haji Wright (Schalke)
Schalke ended the Bundesliga season in 14th place and were knocked out of the Champions League in the Round of 16. Wright played in seven senior games for Schalke, starting two and scoring once, while also seeing extensive time with the reserve sides. The 21-year-old wasn’t named to the Gold Cup squad, but he was one of a handful of U-23 prospects who were brought to the pre-Gold Cup training camp to work with Berhalter and the senior team.
Alfredo Morales (Fortuna Dusseldorf)
Dusseoldorf ended the Bundesliga season in 10th place. Morales played in 23 league games, starting 16, and tallied one goal and one assist. The 29-year-old was in and out of the club’s league squad all season, and it’s not certain just how much he’s valued, though he did provide decent minutes over the course of the season.
Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund, on loan from Chelsea)
Dortmund finished the season in second place as they were pipped to the Bundesliga title by Bayern Munich. They were also knocked out of the Champions League in the Round of 16. In his final season at the Signal Iduna Park before his summer move to Chelsea, Pulisic racked up four goals and four assists in 20 league games (nine starts), as well as one goal in seven Champions League appearances (five starts). In his time at Dortmund, the 20-year-old racked up 18 goals and 26 assists in 126 competitive games. As expected, Pulisic is indeed on the Gold Cup roster, but he wasn’t in the squad that faced Jamaica.
Timothy Tillman (FC Nurnberg, on loan from Bayern Munich)
Nurnberg ended the Bundesliga season in 18th place and were relegated. Tillman played in six league games, starting one, and did not record a goal or an assist. The 20-year-old has now returned to Bayern Munich and will look to either break into the fringes of the first-team squad or seek another loan next year.
Bobby Wood (Hannover, on loan from Hamburg)
Hannover ended the Bundesliga season in 17th place and were relegated. Wood played in 20 league games, starting 12, and tallied three goals and an assist. The forward's future remains unclear, as he appears unlikely to return to either Hannover or Hamburg due to his high wages as both prepare for second division football next season.
Julian Green (Greuther Fuerth)
Fuerth ended the 2. Bundesliga season in 13th place. Green played in 29 league games and racked up totals of four goals and two assists, all of which are career-best numbers. The 23-year-old looks set for another year of second-division action in 2019-20.
Jordan Siebatcheu (Rennes)
Rennes ended the Ligue 1 season in 10th place. Siebatcheu, who missed most of the last three months due to injury, made it back to the bench for Rennes’ season-ending 3-1 win over Lille, but he did not make it onto the pitch. The 23-year-old had three goals and an assist in 15 league games (seven starts), as well as one goal in three Europa League games (two starts).
Andrija Novakovich (Fortuna Sittard, on loan from Reading)
Sittard ended the Eredivisie season in 15th place. Novakovich played in 29 league games, starting 27, and racked up nine goals and two assists. The 22-year-old will return to Reading and will hope to earn a spot in the first team ahead of next season.
Erik Palmer-Brown (NAC Breda, on loan from Manchester City)
Breda ended the Eredivisie season in 18th place and were relegated. Palmer-Brown played and started in 18 games for NAC, scoring once. The 22-year-old will return to Manchester City for the summer but looks very likely to go on another loan in the fall.
Timothy Weah (Celtic, on loan from PSG)
Celtic ended the season atop the Scottish Premiership table and won the league title. Weah scored four goals in 16 appearances (four starts) during his loan. The 19-year-old has spent the past two weeks playing for the UMSNT U-20 side during the World Cup in Poland, during which he’s started all four games so far for the Stars and Stripes, scoring a winner against Qatar and assisting on two other goals, in a loss against Ukraine and a 3-2 knockout round upset win over France. His club future remains unclear, but Weah should have plenty of options for what comes next thanks to his standout showing in Poland.
Emerson Hyndman (Bournemouth, English Premier League)
Bournemouth ended the Premier League season in 14th place. Hyndman made just one substitute appearance for the Cherries this season after spending the first half of the campaign on loan in Scotland with Hibernian. Like Wright, Hyndman was included in Berhalter’s combined training camp squad despite not making the Gold Cup roster.
Kyle Scott (Chelsea, English Premier League)
Chelsea ended the Premier League season in third place, qualifying for next season’s Champions League, and the Blues also won this year’s Europa League final. Scott did not feature at any level for Chelsea all year after spending the first half of the season on loan to Dutch second-tier side Telstar. Rumors this week indicate that the 21-year-old is set to join Newcastle on a free transfer this summer, though those are nothing more than whispers for now. His status is something to monitor over the coming months.
Geoff Cameron (Queens Park Rangers, on loan from Stoke City)
QPR ended the Championship season in 19th place. Cameron made 19 appearances (17 starts) in his loan spell and tallied a goal and an assist. The veteran defender has returned to Stoke; what comes next for the 33-year-old (who will turn 34 this summer) is very much up in the air.
Eric Lichaj (Hull City, Championship)
Hull ended the Championship season in 13th place. Lichaj made 39 appearances (35 starts) over the course of his first campaign for the Tigers, and the 30-year-old seems likely to return to the club next year.
Duane Holmes (Derby County, Championship)
Holmes missed out on Derby’s 2-1 playoff final defeat to Aston Villa because of a thigh problem. The 24-year-old played in 27 league games (starting 18) during his first campaign at Pride Park, scoring twice and contributing one assist while blossoming into an important and versatile cog in Frank Lampard’s midfield. He’ll likely take up a similar position next year as the Rams prepare for another second-division campaign. Holmes also earned his first USMNT callup and debuted with a sparkling 24-minute cameo against Jamaica, which also solidified his spot in the full Gold Cup squad.
Lynden Gooch (Sunderland, League 1)
Sunderland fell 2-1 to a last-second Charlton winner in the League 1 playoff final. Gooch was an unused substitute in the final. The 23-year-old had a stop-and-start campaign in the third tier, scoring seven goals total in 43 matches in all competitions. He’ll hope for a more consistent 2019-20 season as Sunderland prepares for another year in League 1.
Gboly Ariyibi (Motherwell, Scottish Premiership, on loan from Nottingham Forest)
Jann George (Jahn Regensburg, 2. Bundesliga)
Regensburg ended the 2. Bundesliga season in eighth place. George played in 32 league games for the club, starting 27, and he racked up five goals and two assists.
Ken Gipson (Sandhausen, 2. Bundesliga)
Sandhausen ended the 2. Bundesliga season in 15th place. Gipson made one substitute appearance over the course of the campaign. His contract has not been renewed for 2019-20, so the defender will be looking for a new club this summer.
Andrew Wooten (Sandhausen, 2. Bundesliga)
Sandhausen ended the 2. Bundesliga season in 15th place. Wooten made 31 appearances (27 starts) over the course of the campaign and scored 17 goals, tied for fourth-best in the division.
Joe Gyau (Duisburg, 2. Bundesliga)
Duisburg ended the 2. Bundesliga season in 18th place and were relegated to the third tier. Gyau collected two goals and an assist in 20 games (seven starts). That looming relegation makes his club future somewhat uncertain, but Gyau first made his return to the USMNT after five years away with a 20-plus minute substitute showing against Jamaica. Despite being on the preliminary roster, though, he is not in the final Gold Cup squad.
Kevin Lankford (St. Pauli, 2. Bundesliga)
St. Pauli ended the 2. Bundesliga season in ninth place. Lankford made five appearances (three starts) following his January arrival from Heidenheim, and he’ll have every opportunity to fight for further minutes in his first full year at the club.
Khiry Shelton (Paderborn, 2. Bundesliga)
Paderborn ended the 2. Bundesliga season in second place and were promoted to the Bundesliga. Shelton made two substitute appearances after arriving in the winter and immediately suffering a knee injury. He’ll look to work his way into the team on a consistent basis next season.
Shaq Moore (Levante, La Liga)
Levante ended the La Liga season in 15th place. After spending the first half of the season on loan with CF Reus, Moore played exclusively for Levante’s reserves in 2019. He too will look to take a big step forward next season as he searches for first-team minutes.
Ethan Horvath (Club Brugge, Jupiler League)
Club Brugge ended the Jupiler League season in second place and will enter next season’s Champions League in the Third Qualifying Round. Horvath had a strong second half for Brugge, playing in 20 league games. However, that momentum was stalled by a finger injury suffered late in the year which will keep Horvath sidelined for the Gold Cup (despite his initial inclusion in the preliminary roster).
Brendan Hines-Ike (Kortrijk, Jupiler League)
Kortrijk ended the Jupiler League season with a loss in the Europa League playoff semifinal, in which Hines-Ike went all 90 minutes. The defender scored once in 25 games (23 starts) this season.
Desevio Payne (Excelsior Rotterdam, Eredivisie)
Excelsior ended the Eredivisie season in 16th place and lost in the relegation playoff, so they’ll spend next year in the second division. Payne did not make an appearance this season.
Romain Gall (Malmo, Allsvenskan)
Gall was an unused substitute as Malmo beat Helsingborg 1-0 in Allsvenskan play. Malmo sit atop the table with nine wins in 13 games.
Ian Harkes (Dundee United, Scottish Championship)
Dundee United ended the Scottish Championship season in second place, but they lost a two-legged promotion-playoff final against St. Mirren and will spend next season in the second tier again. Harkes played every minute of the two-legged final. He made 20 appearances and scored once in his first European campaign.
Our last Americans Abroad entry of the season was always going to have a hefty finale, and there’s a lot to get to in the youth ranks this week. We’ll begin in Poland at the U-20 World Cup where, as mentioned above, the USMNT has advanced to the quarterfinals, where they will face Ecuador on Saturday. It’s been an impressive run to get to this point for the young Yanks, 11 of whom are European-based players who were on our list this season. In addition to Weah, those are: Alex Mendez, Konrad de la Fuente, Chris Gloster, Chris Richards, Sergino Dest, Brady Scott, Sebastian Soto, Richie Ledezma, CJ Dos Santos, and
