NASHVILLE, TN – Nashville SC announced Monday the signing of United States youth international goalkeeper Brady Scott. Scott, 21, has spent the past three seasons with FC Köln in Germany, making 29 appearances for FC Köln II. Scott has been a regular for the US youth national teams, starting for the U-20 side that won the Concacaf World Cup Qualifying in 2019, and earning the Golden Glove at the Concacaf U-20 Championship.
“Brady is an outstanding young goalkeeper whose been a standout as a U.S. Youth International,” Nashville SC General Manager Mike Jacobs said in the club release. “Coupled with his practical experience abroad the past couple of years, we are excited to see him take the next step in his development in MLS here in Nashville.”
Scott is currently the fourth goalkeeper on Nashville’s roster. Adrián Zendejas served as the backup in preseason and the first two matches of the regular season, but SuperDraft pick Elliot Panicco was on the bench for both matches in Dallas. It seems unlikely that Nashville will keep all four ‘keepers on the roster, with a loan move, or even a transfer, seeming likely for one of them.
Nashville SC travel to Atlanta United on Saturday night, a rematch of their MLS opener, which they lost 2-1. The expansion side is currently in 11th place in the East, with four points from four games.
Scott will be available for the Atlanta match, pending the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate. He will wear the number 31 shirt for Nashville.
