Out of contract following 2018 season.

Back in MLS for his second stint, Beasley has slowly transitioned from winger to fullback, eventually earning a starting place there with the US national team and then the Dynamo. While his straight-line speed isn't what it used to be, his balance and agility are still elite, as is his brain. Beasley has a knack for finding the right spots in possession and is never out of place defensively.

INTERNATIONAL: Run-DMB burst onto the world soccer scene in 1999 when he won the Silver Ball at that year's U-17 World Cup, combining with Landon Donovan to form a dynamic attack. He went on to translate that talent to the full US national team, having racked up 123 caps as a winger and left back for the US from 2001 to 2015. He's the first American to play in four World Cups (2014, 2010, 2006 and 2002), appearing in 11 career matches at the tournament, tied for second-most in U.S. history. Appeared in at least one game for the US every year for 15 consecutive years (2001-15). His 124 caps are the fifth-most in USMNT history, and also has the 8th most assists (13), and is tied for the 9th most goals (17). Regionally, he won four CONCACAF Gold Cup titles: 2002, 2005, 2007, 2013 and captained the United States at the 2013 Gold Cup

OUTSIDE MLS: Moved to Dutch powerhouse PSV Eindhoven in 2004 and became an immediate contributor, helping lead the team to the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League while earning a starting role at left wing. Beasley left PSV on a loan move to Manchester City where he appeared 22 times for the Citizens, scoring four goals on the year. The following season he made his way to Glasgow Rangers, but once again struggled with injuries robbing him of regular playing time. Beasley managed just 46 appearances across all competitions over three seasons, and never really earned a regular role. After that came a move to Hannover 96 in 2010-2011 where he struggled for consistent playing time.

With a change needed, Beasley crossed the Atlantic to earn his stripes in LigaMX. He found a warm welcome with Puebla, and spent three years there reviving his career. He suited up 99 times across all competitions, mostly at wingback in a 3-5-2 set-up, and scored 13 goals.
