Beasley prepared to leave Rangers in January
After joining Rangers from PSV Eindhoven in 2007, U.S. midfielder DaMarcus Beasley expected to enjoy a lengthy spell with the successful Scottish club.
Unfortunately, after just over two years with the club, Beasley has seen his opportunities to play become limited and he may be after a move in the January transfer window.
"It has been frustrating and I'm looking to move away from Rangers," Beasley told Yanks Abroad. "It's not that I'm not happy with the club, it's just that I want to play. I'm only 27 and I feel like I have another six, seven or eight years left."
Beasley must also have an eye on next summer's World Cup as not playing for his club team has caused U.S. national-team coach Bob Bradley to not pick him for his squad since the Confederations Cup in June.
"My options are open. It might be a move back to Holland or maybe Spain," said Beasley of where he may end up. "But it needs to be the right situation, where I get a chance to play and stake my claim to U.S. coach Bob Bradley about getting back on the national team and playing at the World Cup next summer."
A native of Fort Wayne, Ind., Beasley started his professional career with the Los Angeles Galaxy but never played and eventually was traded to the Chicago Fire, for whom he flourished, making 88 appearances and scoring 14 goals.
He's also an experienced player at the international level with 89 appearances for the U.S. since 2001 and has netted 17 goals in the process.
