The Los Angeles native began his career at New York Cosmos before moving to mainland Europe to play for German giants Schalke in 2016.
Over the last seven years, Haji has played in the Bundesliga, the Eredivisie, Denmark, and Turkey before confirmation of his move to England today.
Haji, who has been capped seven times by the USMNT, appeared in all four of his country’s matches at the 2022 FIFA World Cup and scored against the Netherlands in the Stars and Stripes’ 3-1 round of 16 defeat to the Netherlands.
Speaking of his move, Haji said, “It feels amazing. I’m really excited to get going. I was immediately excited by the project and the investment being made at the club. It was an easy decision to make.”
