DAVID SMITH - Monday, June 30, 2014
Terrence Boyd has left Austrian club Rapid Vienna and will join German 2. Bundesliga upstarts RB Leipzig.

Two successful seasons which saw the former Dortmund youth product net a total of 28 league goals and another eight in European competition brought him to the attention of several clubs during this summer

After several days of a public poker game between all involved parties, Rapid announced the transfer of Boyd back to the country of his birth on their website.

"The US striker will leave Rapid in the direction of Germany," Rapid officially released. "Now the dual-citizen will transfer back to his birth land and will be hunting goals for RasenBallsport Leipzig in the 2. Bundesliga in the future."

Boyd joins an ambitious team in former East Germany which has made the jump from the fifth division to the second in a space of five seasons. Originally called SSV Markranstädt, the team was taken under the Red Bull umbrella beginning the 2009-10 season and has steadily made headway towards Germany's top division.

Boyd joins the German team for what is believed to be a transfer fee in the region of €1.5-2M, and will likely be penciled into the starting lineup for the team which finished second place in Germany's 3. Liga last season to earn promotion.

The 23 year-old will have a relatively busy pre-season with the team, which has scheduled games against Paris Saint-Germain, Getafe and Queens Park Rangers prior to their August 2 curtain raiser in Leipzig against VfR Aalen.
