Middlesbrough are close to completing the signing of the 21-year-old USA international striker
Have to hope the permit is granted & we can get him in quick.. first of a few more with any luck .
Good write up & seems to have had a sudden burst onto the scene & taken his chance we'll.. Spain move hit a bump, though hopefully he'll find the Riverside more to his liking..See this
Matthew Hoppe has gone from unknown American youth player to a goal-scoring U.S. international in the space of six months. All that during and thanks to one of the most difficult seasons in the long and illustrious history of his former club, Schalke.www.bundesliga.com
Wilder said about Steffen that he liked the attitude of American sports people, with any luck Hoppe will have the same play & train to win mentality..Bit of a strange one for me this - is he one for the future or being seen as going straight in to the first eleven
