After plenty of rumors of where young American and Columbus Crew midfielder would go next, Danny Szetela is set to be the only American in La Liga this season once he passes a physical with Racing Standender.

The Columbus Crew will rake in at least $150,000 in transfer fees from the deal. Szetela has been rumored for the past couple months to transfer to Roma, Newcastle and other clubs in Europe.

As for Columbus this is probably the best, Szetela has been wanting a move to Europe for some time now and it is only for the best really. He never was a true impact player for the Crew but he is still fairly young, so some growth should be seen in his game.

The transfer money should help out for the Crew. I don’t know if they are looking to another addition to the roster at this point in the season but as far as an off season push goes they should be doing alright to land another solid addition to their club.

Your thoughts on the move?
