U.S. U-20 forward Sabbi moves to Las Palmas

The attacker has been a regular with the USA's U-20 side, and will now look to make the breakthrough in Spain's top flight.

U.S. Under-20 national team forward Emmanuel Sabbi announced Tuesday that he has completed a move to UD Las Palmas of La Liga.

Sabbi, 18, had committed to attend the University of Akron but will instead continue his career in Spain. 

The Italian-born attacker will join last season's 11th-place finisher in Spain's top flight. The club is based in the Canary Islands and opened this season with a 4-2 win at Valencia on Monday.
