U.S men’s national team goalkeeper Zack Steffen has been loaned out by Manchester City to Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Steffen, 24, was bought by Man City in December and immediately loaned back to his former club the Columbus Crew until this summer.
Fortuna announced on Tuesday that following Steffen being the USMNT’s number one goalkeeper for the 2019 Gold Cup he will spend the 2019-20 campaign on loan with them in the Bundesliga.
“I am really looking forward to returning to Germany and becoming part of such a traditional club,” Steffen said about the move.
Fortuna’s sporting director Lutz Pfannenstiel, who was a legendary goalkeeper himself, is delighted that Steffen has arrived.
