Euan Holden Signs One Year Deal With Denmark's Vejle BK

Euan Holden will follow his older brother and play in Europe.
Euan Holden secured a one-year deal with Danish side Vejle Boldklub the club today.

The former University of New Mexico left sided defender or midfield held tryouts with a series of clubs across Europe before Vejle offered him a deal.

“Euan Holden is a young and very promising player who has the qualities we're looking for right now,” VB coach Mats Gren told the club's official site. “He is strong, quick and has the will to develop. Meanwhile, the big plus is that he is an all-around player who can cover several positions."

Instead of signing a deal with the Houston Dynamo, the MLS club that drafted him and where his older brother Stuart developed before signing with Bolton, the 22-year-old will head straight to Europe from college.
