Nashville SC adds former FC Koln goalkeeper and US international
Nashville SC is getting busy in the secondary transfer window of the MLS season! After swapping two international roster spots for this year and the next to acquire Alex Muyl on Tuesday from New York Red Bulls, news has broken Friday morning that Nashville has signed another young American international!
MLS contributing journalist Tom Bogert confirmed that 21-year-old shot-stopper Brady Scott will be leaving The Billy Goats immediately and move back to the United States to join up with one of MLS' newest clubs.
Scott leaves Koln after featuring heavily for the club's B team and did not make a first team appearance between the summer of 2017 and today.
It is worth noting that the goalkeeper was stunning in goal for the U.S. Under-20 team at the CONCACAF U-20 Championship. He was awarded the Golden Gloves for being the best goalie in the competition.
Although there is very little information available regarding Brady Scott, I like the move because of the message it sends to the league and the players within the club already and those that come over in the next couple of years.
NSC is committed to signing and developing young, American talent. They did it in the draft by taking center back Jack Maher, trading for Walker Zimmerman, and signing Alex Muyl as well.
While this is definitely a long-term move (I don't think we will see Scott play a match this season) it is a very good one.
Brady will join the Nashville squad and immediately begin competing with starter Joe Willis many expect as well as the first choice back-up, Adrian Zendejas.
Nashville also has rookie Elliot Panicco in the system and he was on the bench on Wednesday night for the trip to Frisco. Man, for a new club, NSC sure is busy making little tweaks to the squad to improve.
