John Brooks: Mallorca to Sign USMNT Defender, World Cup Hopeful

U.S. international John Brooks will reportedly join La Liga side Mallorca, according to multiple reports. Spanish journalist Juan Carlos Taura was first to report the move.

The 29-year-old center back has been without a club since leaving Wolfsburg at the end of his contract in June. In five seasons with the German club, Brooks made 146 appearances across all competitions. 

He joined Wolfsburg in 2017 from Hertha Berlin for a then-record 20 million euro transfer fee for an American international, which was later broken by Christian Pulisic’s 2019 move to Chelsea. 

With the U.S. men’s national team, Brooks has made 45 senior appearances since his debut in 2013. He has not played for the USMNT since the September World Cup qualifiers, while an injury ruled him out of the October camp. U.S. manager Gregg Berhalter told ESPN last month that Brooks’s continued exile since then came down to the fact that he wasn’t replicating the U.S.’s style of play at his club.
