The wave of young Americans jumping into the top 5 leagues in Europe could have another wave as Chris Gloster is reportedly a transfer target from Newcastle United. ESPN reports that the left defender has caught the attention of Magpies who are struggling to find a permanent option in this role. The move would require an ESPN work permit.

Gloster joined PSV in 2019 and played for both the Jong PSV team and the senior national team in the Eredivisie. He still has one more year on his PSV contract but the move would put him in a position to fight for the season with Newcastle’s U-23 team and possibly push for a role on the Premier League squad.

He’s now also joining the hottest trend in world football transfers – young Americans off the back. Obviously, this is an exciting potential move as the depth and breadth of US talent continues to expand and more recognition is gained by Scouts in competitive leagues.
