Real Salt Lake Inks MF Moses Nyeman On 2023 Loan From SK Beveren 


HERRIMAN, Utah (Monday, February 20, 2023) – In the latest of roster moves to be announced during the current Major League Soccer primary transfer window, Real Salt Lake has signed 19-year-old MF Moses Nyeman via loan from SK Beveren (Belgian A2) through the 2023 calendar year, with an option to purchase, the Utah-based Club announced.

Nyeman’s signing marks the third player arrival to Real Salt Lake from Owner David Blitzer’s growing football network, following FW Sergio Cordova’s arrival last year from FC Augsburg (German Bundesliga). For much of last Summer, RSL also saw Swiss DF Chris Kablan on loan from the Belgian side. Blitzer boasts interests in seven European soccer entities, including Crystal Palace (England), FC Augsburg (Germany), Estoril (Portugal), ADO Den Haag (Netherlands), Alcorcón (Spain), SK Beveren (Belgium) and Brøndby IF (Denmark).

“Moses has shown well during this preseason in Utah, and has assimilated well to the group dynamic the last several weeks,” said Real Salt Lake General Manager Elliot Fall, now in his 17th season with the Club. “We believe the glut of MLS experience gained at such a young age at D.C. United and his brief time with Beveran, as well as his life journey from Liberia to the U.S. youth national team system, have brought him to a point where he can contribute here.”

Nyeman, 19, joined Beveren last August, following four seasons with both Loudoun United (USL Championship) and D.C. United (MLS) from 2019-22. Nyeman scored three goals in eight appearances in 2019 with the U.S. U-16 and U-17 teams – yet also remains eligible to appear for his country of birth, Liberia – due to the unofficial nature of his U.S. matches. Late in the 2019 season, Nyeman signed his first professional contract with D.C.’s USL side, Loudoun United, for which he scored once in 15 appearances during the 2019 season. In October, 2019, Nyeman became D.C. United’s second-youngest signing ever, as a 15-year-old homegrown.

“My arrival to RSL has been a breath of fresh air, I’ve really enjoyed the welcome that my teammates and the club have provided,” said Nyeman on his way back from Arizona with RSL, who played four preseason matches in Phoenix and Tucson prior to Saturday’s return to Utah. “I see that everything from our coaching staff to the boys and through to our second team is well-managed for our group success. I’m looking forward to continuing to work hard here, getting to know our fans and the community-at-large.”
