Borussia Monchengladbach have stolen a march on a number of English sides to land American midfielder Michael Bradley.

The likes of Middlesbrough, Newcastle and Blackburn were all thought to be chasing the highly-rated Heerenveen star, but they have lost out to Monchengladbach.

Bradley's future has been the subject of intense speculation for some time with the player turning down a new deal at Hereenveen leaving him with just a year to run on his contract.

It is believed Bradley's English suitors were hoping to wait until January to sign the 21-year-old on a pre-contract rather than pay a fee for his services this summer.

However, Monchengladbach have stolen in to agree a fee with Heerenveen to sign the attacking midfielder.

"He is a versatile midfield player, for his age who has quite a lot of experience with it," Monchengladbach sports director Christian Ziege told the club's official website.

"We hope that everything works and we will make everything perfect tomorrow."
