USMNT winger Brenden Aaronson has left Leeds for Bundesliga side Union Berlin on a season-long loan following a difficult debut Premier League campaign.
The 22-year-old failed to add to his single goal for the Yorkshire outfit back in August against Chelsea but will now have the chance to play Champions League football next season following a ground-breaking season for the German capital city club.

The news was confirmed by the club’s official social media platforms which stated that they welcomed Aaronson’s arrival with open arms.
First he took Philadelphia and then he took Salzburg. Then he took Elland Road… And now he takes Berlin
Welcome to the club, Brenden. You're gonna love it here.

Speaking about his summer switch, the New Jersey native stated, “Union’s path and the success of the last few years did not go unnoticed in either the USA, Austria, or England. Somehow, you always heard something about them. A year ago, I wouldn’t have believed that I would be here and able to play in the Champions League with Union.”
Aaronson joins fellow USMNT international Jordan Pefok in the German capital next season as The Iron Ones prepare for their first Champions League campaign in the club’s history.
