Carson, CA – It’s official. The LA Galaxy have announced that LA Galaxy striker and Homegrown player, Jack McBean is going on a loan with the third tier English side, Coventry City. The loan was announced for the remainder of the 2016 season.
Coventry City has started their 2016 season on a goalless run. Three games and zero goals scored. With the addition of Jack McBean and some other players on loan they’ll be looking to generate some offense and quickly.
As originally reported by Corner of the Galaxy back on August 7th, McBean has already been training with the club and had also played in a U-21 game for Coventry City. In that game he scored the only goal in a 3-1 defeat.
“We think this loan will put him in a position to help reach his potential while providing him with consistent playing time against strong competition,” said LA Galaxy Head Coach and General Manager Bruce Arena. “Jack is a young and talented player that has continued to develop…”
Pete Vagenas, LA Galaxy Vice President of Soccer Operations, said ” We will continue to monitor Jack’s time on loan at Coventry City as he progresses both on and off the field. We are confident that this environment will allow him to grow as a player.”
Jack McBean was the league leader in goals scored for LA Galaxy II, the LA Galaxy’s USL team, with 15 goals before he departed for England. And surely he’ll be looking to help his new team out of the slow start to their season.
Coventry City currently sit in 18th place in League 1 standings and will face off against Bradford City at 7AM Pacific time.
