Salzburg: Ashimeru Makes Loan to Anderlecht Permanent

Majeed Ashimeru won't be returning to Red Bull Salzburg for the 2021-22 season and instead will make his loan to Anderlecht in Belgium permanent according to the team. The 23 year-old Ghanaian international joined Salzburg in 2017 but only played in 42 matches over that stretch.

"For Majeed, the loan was a good solution for all parties," said Sporting Director Christoph Freund. "He played well in a strong league last season and is joining RSC Anderlecht permanently. We wish him the very best."

Over the 42 games that Ashimeru played with Salzburg, he scored three goals and notched eight assists. Over that time he has seen massive turnover with the club including managers Marco Rose and Jesse Marsch. The team was incredibly successful over that time and has solidified itself as a constant Champions League contender. Unfortunately it did not appear as if Ashimeru was being considered as a part of the teams future plans.

The move continues a string of transfers that sees a modest rebuild occurring in Salzburg. There is still a feeling that the team's top striker Patson Daka may move to another league as well. Red Bull has made Salzburg's transitions seamless in the past with winning still being a top priority. Whether or not this will be another easy transition remains to be seen.

The Unfortunate Vanzeir, Struber incident that has upset the fans, and league

photo by Matt Kremkau by Dan Feuerstein The Worst moment in New York Red Bulls/MetroStars history has finally come to a temporary conclusion. When I say a temporary conclusion, it means that Major League Soccer hasn't informed the masses of the punishment that would fit this horrible situation that graced the pitch at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night, April 8th against the San Jose Earthquakes. Here is the timeline of events that happened in that match as we try to piece together what all of us saw and how it all got started from beginning to end. In the 54th minute, another horrific challenge against the New York Red Bulls struck again as Judson delivered a two-footed mid-air challenge to the chest of Dylan Nealis and sadly all it got was a yellow card, Dylan's brother, and Captain Sean Nealis protested very loudly and earned his booking for his dissent of the referee's decision. While the arguments continued between Sean Nealis & Earthquakes representative Jeremy Ebob

Rumor: Dru Yearwood to be Traded to Nashville SC

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced More trade rumors are circulating as Red Bulls midfielder Dru Yearwood is linked to a move to Nashville SC according to Tom Bogert of the Athletic . What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly. At times he played in a defensive midfield role next to Frankie Amaya and other times higher up the field, almost as a second forward. After the departure of Cristian Casseres Jr. earlier in the year, it appeared as if Yearwood's minutes would increase. However Daniel Edelman stepped into the role, relegating Yearwood to more
