Report: Borussia Monchengladbach win race to sign Orlando's Cyle Larin

Cyle Larin - Orlando City - August 5, 2017


Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach have beaten out Turkish giants Besiktas and English promotion hopefuls Leeds United for the services of Canada national team forward Cyle Larin, according to a report from The Sun (UK).

The 22-year-old Larin has spent his three-year pro career entirely with Orlando City SC, scoring 43 goals in 87 league appearances, but this fall had indicated his desire for a transfer to Europe.

That was perhaps no shock after the July arrival of striker Dom Dwyer and reported interest from abroad in Larin in the summer window.

A move to Germany would be a bit of a surprise, however, after reports of a potential switch to join Besiktas and Canada teammate Atiba Hutchinson appeared to have legs.
