RANGERS can today confirm the signing of Emerson Hyndman from AFC Bournemouth until the end of the season.
The USA international joins the Gers from the Premier League outfit for the remainder of the season after signing permanently for Eddie Howe’s side in the summer.
The 20-year-old has made three appearances for the Cherries this season, most recently in the weekend’s FA Cup tie against Milwall. His other appearances came in two EFL Cup games.
Emerson joined the south coast side in the summer after his contract at Fulham expired. Despite numerous offers he elected to join up with Howe due to his playing philosophy.
Speaking at the time Emerson said: “There were a few clubs in the mix and stuff, but the manager here really explained what he wanted to do, both with Bournemouth and with me. He’s developed players from the lower leagues to the Premier League, which is a huge achievement, so I knew he was well respected for that.”
The Texan born midfielder signed for Fulham aged 15 in 2011 and eventually went on to sign a professional deal at the age of 17. He was an ever present as the London club made their way to the FA Youth Cup final in the 2013/14 season.
Three months after turning professional, Hyndman impressed enough to earn an improved deal with the club. He went on to make his first team debut at the age of 18 in the Championship, standing out with his sublime range of passing and comfort on the ball despite his tender age. He continued his development in the Cottagers first-team, clocking up 17 appearances last season.
His international career started in 2012, when he turned out for the USA under-17s side. Just two years later, after three appearances for Fulham, he was called up to the senior squad and made his debut against the Czech Republic.
To further aid his progression, in 2015 Hyndman was involved in the Under-20 FIFA World Cup and captained the United States side in New Zealand. He continued to catch the eye in the tournament, where the Americans lost on penalties in the quarter finals.
In May, Jurgen Klinsmann handed him his third cap for the USA first team, coming on in a 3-1 friendly win against Puerto Rico.
