Midfielder Taylor Booth is FC Utrecht’s first acquisition for the 2022/2023 season. The 20-year-old international from the United States comes without transfers from Bayern Munich after this year and has signed a contract at Domstadt until mid-2025.

As a young player, the American, who also holds an Italian passport, played at the Real Salt Lake youth academy in the United States. At the age of sixteen he moved to Bayern Munich. Last season, Booth played on lease for Austrian team Sankt-Pölten. This year, the young American played fifteen matches for the Bayern Munich U-23 team, scoring once and providing five assists. On August 25, 2021, he made his official debut with FC Bayern Munich in the first round of the German Cup.
“Taylor is a huge talent who currently plays for Bayern Munich and has now also been called up to the US national team,” said coach Jordi Zuidham. “With him we bring a dynamic midfielder with great footballing potential. He is a box-to-box player who plays with a lot of energy and that really makes him a player that fits our system. We are proud that we were able to convince him of our choice.”
“It’s just a perfect step for my personal development,” Booth says. “I have been convinced by the conversations with many people within FC Utrecht, which makes me very much looking forward to this adventure. I am a multiplayer midfielder with ball skills and love to get my teammates involved in the game,” describes the newcomer himself.
