Union Berlin’s Adam Nemec has had his contract with the capital club terminated by mutual consent and will join newly-formed Major League Soccer side New York City FC.
The 29-year-old joined die "Alte Försterei" in summer 2012 from FC Ingolstadt. He made 64 appearances in that time, scoring 14 goals and also returned to the Slovakian national team.
His contract was originally set to run until 2016, but both parties came to the agreement that it could be terminated.
Union coach Norbert Düwel had this to say, "It is a pity that partnership has not worked as both sides had imagined. Under these circumstances, it is better to part ways. I wish Adam all the best and much success in New York.”
Nemec himself also spoke about the decision to leave, “It was a difficult last few weeks and I am glad that we have now found a solution. I'll take a few painful experiences, but also very good memories.
“In my time at Union I managed to return to the national team, with whom I would absolutely love to play for in the European Championship.
“To this end I have to play and I finally this chance again. I thank you especially for the great fans of Union, who have always supported me.”
Nemec will join Mix Diskerud and David Villa, amongst others, in New York’s newest team.
