Charlotte FC are signing Premier League veteran Ashley Westwood from the English club Burnley, multiple outlets reported Monday.
The 32-year-old defensive midfielder made 286 appearances in England’s top flight with Burnley and Aston Villa from 2012-22.
He started 26 matches in 2021-22 before sustaining a broken ankle in April. He has not appeared in a game this season since Burnley’s relegation to the EFL Championship.
Ashley Westwood is expected to join MLS side Charlotte FC soon. Believe it’s a three year deal.
