US international midfielder Luca de la Torre leaving Fulham for Eredivisie club Heracles

US international midfielder Luca de la Torre is making the move from Fulham to Eredivisie side Heracles Almelo, per a Thursday announcement.

De La Torre, 23, had been with the Fulham organization since 2013 after making the move from his youth club San Diego Surf, only appearing in seven first-team matches in the English Championship. He did pick up several more appearances in cup play, earning a Man of the Match nod against Milwall after picking up a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win.

The San Diego native will hope that the change in scenery will result in some more minutes. De la Torre was a regular on the US youth national team circuit, making 28 appearances for the U-17s from 2013-2015 and 15 for the U-20s from 2016-2017, picking up four goals. He also has one senior cap for the US men's national team, which he picked up in a June 2018 in a friendly against Ireland.

De la Torre's deal with Heracles is reportedly for two years.
