Hibs winger Chris Mueller joins Chicago Fire

Last updated : 05 May 2022 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have tonight confirmed that winger Chris Mueller has eneded his short stay in Edinburgh.

The USA international joined the Hibees in January from MLS side Orlando City, after agreeing a pre-contract signing.

However the 25-year-old has struggled to hold down a first team spot since arriving in Scotland, only making 15 appearances (6 starts) and 1 goal following his much celebrated move to Easter Road.

News reports are suggesting Mueller was on £10,000 a week at the club, and his short stay has cost £160,000 in wages!

Hibs have apparently accepted an undisclosed fee for the player, and he could make his Chicago debut this weekend.

Hibernian-Mad View:

This has come out of the blue, and to be honest is quite dissapointing.

Mueller come with a big reputation, and failed to live up to it.

To be fair to him, 15 games isn'r enough time to settle down into the side and get used to Scottish Football.

Good luck to him with his new club, but I think we can file this one under failure
