BRIAN SCIARETTA - Tuesday, July 12, 2011
US U-20 goalkeeper Cody Cropper is on the verge of signing a one year professional contract with English Championship club Ipswich Town FC and the deal should be complete soon.

Cropper, 18, has been playing with the team under an academy deal but the club is set to make the young American a professional.

"Cody's contract has essentially been sorted and commenced from 1 July," Ipswich Town FC press officer Jade Cole told YA. "However at this stage it's just a case of ‘dotting the i's and crossing the t's' and we are hoping he will be signing by the end of this week. The agreement is a one year professional contract."

Cropper began last season playing for the club's U-18 team but in the second half of the season he made multiple appearances with the reserve team.

Cropper is a dual citizen with the United States and England but he has spent time with many US youth national teams. Most recently he was part of the US U-20 World Cup qualifying team and is eligible for the 2013 U-20 team as well.

This is great news. It means that now he can go out on loan to lower division teams and get some games under his belt. Brilliant.
