U.S. Forward Altidore Joins Turkish Side Bursaspor

ImageU.S. forward Jozy Altidore has joined Turkish side Bursa on a six month loan from Spain's Villarreal. Altidore, 22, is the second striker to join the defending Turkish champions in the transfer window, as Kenny Miller also signed from Scotland's Rangers. The American made just two appearances off the bench for Villarreal in La Liga and his only goals were in the early stages of the Copa del Rey, the country's league cup.

Altidore joined Villarreal in 2008 from Red Bull New York in Major League Soccer, but made just a handful of league appearances for the club. He spent time on loan at Xerez and Hull City the last two years.

He remains a regular for the U.S., playing more than 30 matches, but a lack of club appearances could hurt his role in the future.
