New York City FC today announced the Club has loaned forward Alexandru Mitriță to Al-Ahli Saudi FC until January 31, 2022, pending the completion of a medical. The Saudi Arabian club has the option to purchase Mitriță at the end of the loan.

Mitriță traveled to Romania earlier this week where he joined the national team for international duty. He was allowed to travel due to unique personal circumstances. Once his obligations to his country are over, Mitriță will immediately join Al-Ahli to conduct a medical.

The forward has played in 12 league games this season scoring four goals and adding two assists. Across his MLS career he’s netted 16 times in 41 appearances and is one of four players in NYCFC history to record a hat-trick for the Club.

The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted travel to the US from abroad. These restrictions have disrupted visits to and from players’ home countries, including Romania. Due to these restrictions, Mitriță’s wife who is expecting their first child, returned to Romania earlier this year.
