Posted on 31 August 2010 by Breton Bonnette

Former IMG Academy goalkeeper Cody Cropper has finally landed a contract offer after almost two years of trials and disappointments. The 17-year old wound up with Roy Keane’s English Championship side Ipswich Town as reported at Inside Minnesota Soccer. Cropper, Minnesota born and with the added bonus of an English passport, signed a two-year deal with the first year a scholar deal and the second, when he turns 18, a professional contract. The youngster had stops along the way at Wolverhampton, Leicester City, Birmingham, Arsenal, and many other English clubs.

Cropper was recently called up to the US Under-20’s to head to Peru for a tournament as head coach Thomas Rongen continues to scour his player pool with the 2011 U-20 World Cup looming.
