MOENCHENGLADBACH, Germany (AP)

Borussia Moenchengladbach has signed U. S. midfielder Fabian Johnson from Bundesliga rival Hoffenheim as of next season.

Moenchengladbach says Johnson has received a four-year contract that becomes valid in the new season. Johnson comes as a free agent.

Moenchengladbach's sports director Max Eberl says Johnson is a ''very interesting player ... who can play on both flanks as a defender or attacker.''

Although he won the European title with Germany's Under-21 team in 2009, Johnson later decided to play for the United States. He has 91 Bundesliga games for Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim.
