According to the reports coming from the Daily Mail, LA Galaxy are currently in negotiation talks with West Bromwich Albion over the transfer of 27-year-old goalkeeper Jonathan Bond from the Premier League to the MLS. Bond is yet to appear for West Brom in the Premier League this season after the club signed David Button to deputies for the current first-choice goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.
And now, Bond will see this move as an opportunity to escape from the lack of game time nightmare he is currently having at the Hawthorns. The Baggies have also moved ahead to secure the signing of Bond’s replacement as they have lined up former Liverpool and Wolves goalkeeper Andy Lonegeran who they want to become the club’s third-choice goalkeeper.
At 27 years of age, not making any appearance for your club for a little over two years is not what you want in your career as a footballer, and that’s the current situation of Jonathan Bond at West Brom.
It will definitely be a great move for Bond to make as it is not looking likely he will be participating in any game for West Brom this season following the spectacular form of Johnstone. Whatever happens in the future, it will be recorded that Bond was never given the chance to show what he is capable of and it will be seen as a wise choice by anybody for the former Peterborough goalkeeper to find his way and move on to a club that will promise him much more playing time than he is getting.
A move to the Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy is seen by Bond as the beginning of a new chapter and a fresh challenge as he will now have the chance to prove himself and try to cement himself as the club’s First-choice option.
