It's been a pretty eventful 24 hours for Joe Scally. In addition to ringing in a new year, the young fullback celebrated his 18th birthday on Dec. 31, which also meant his move from New York City FC to Borussia Mönchengladbach in the German Bundesliga could become official. 

It's been a pretty eventful 24 hours for Joe Scally. In addition to ringing in a new year, the young fullback celebrated his 18th birthday on Dec. 31, which also meant his move from New York City FC to Borussia Mönchengladbach in the German Bundesliga could become official. 

Scally signed with Gladbach in Nov. 2019 with NYCFC announcing at the time the transfer fee was the highest paid for a 16-year-old MLS player in league history. With potential bonuses, the seven-figure transfer fee could rise significantly to become one of the highest transfer fees received for a MLS player being transferred to a European club. NYCFC will also receive a sell-on percentage if Scally is sold in the future. At the time, ESPN reported the initial fee was around $2 million.

Scally joined NYCFC on a Homegrown deal in 2018 and competed for the U.S. U-15 and U-17 national teams, playing in the U-17 World Cup. He made four appearances for NYCFC — all in 2020 — including his first MLS start against the New England Revolution in September.
