Emerson Hyndman has enjoyed two fruitful loan spells in Scotland since joining AFC Bournemouth in June 2016.
The American midfielder joined the Cherries after his contract had expired with Fulham.
He joined the Cottagers youth ranks in 2011 and eventually went on to sign a professional deal at the age of 17.
Hyndman was an ever present as the London club made their way to the FA Youth Cup final in the 2013/14 season.
Three months after turning professional, Hyndman impressed enough to earn an improved deal with the club before going on to make his first-team debut at the age of 18 in the Championship, standing out with his sublime range of passing and comfort on the ball despite his tender age.
He continued his development in the Cottagers first team, clocking up 17 appearances, and the Texas native’s promise saw him turn out for America under-17s in 2012.
Two years later, and after three appearances for Fulham, he was called up to the senior squad and made his debut against Czech Republic.
To further aid his progression, in 2015, Hyndman was involved in the Under-20 FIFA World Cup and captained the United States in New Zealand.
He continued to catch the eye in the tournament, where the Americans lost on penalties in the quarter-finals before, in May, Jurgen Klinsmann handed him his third cap for the USA first team, coming on in a 3-1 friendly win against Puerto Rica.
Hyndman continued to stake his claim for a regular national team berth during a successful loan spell with Rangers in 2016/17.
He established himself as one of the Gers' standout players, netted four goals and supplying as many assists in 17 games for the Scottish Premiership outfit.
This also ensured he would win the club’s Young Player of the Year award despite only being there for six months.
In 2017/18, Hyndman featured in one Carabao Cup and two FA Cup games for the Cherries before being handed his Premier League debut in the 2-1 victory at Burnley on the final day of the season.
At the start of 2018/19, Hyndman joined Hibernian on loan and made 17 appearances during the first half of the season.
He returned to Vitality Stadium and made his second appearance in the Premier League when he came off the bench in the Cherries' 3-3 draw at Southampton in April 2019.
In July 2019, Hyndman joined reigning Major League Soccer champions Atlanta United on loan until 31st December 2019, with the club then having an option to buy him permanently.
