Fabian, 29, is close to agreeing to a deal to join the Philadelphia Union after three-and-a-half seasons with Eintracht Frankfurt.

A regular under Niko Kovac, Fabian has made just two appearances under new Eintracht coach Adi Hutter.

Fabian missed most of last season with injury, but registered seven goals and four assists during the 2017-18 Bundesliga season.

Should he link up with Philly, he’ll be tasked with helping to fill the void caused by the departure of Borek Dockal.

Fabian has 42 caps for Mexico.
