Jack McBean will join English club Coventry City on a six-month loan


LA Galaxy striker Jack McBean is set to join English Third Division club Coventry City on a six-month loan which could be extended for up to a full year.

According to multiple reports from the United States and England, LA Galaxy striker Jack McBean is set to join Coventry City on a six-month loan. The loan could be extended for up to one year. It will be a good chance for McBean to gain valuable overseas experience as he joins the English Third Division club.

Coventry City play in League 1, which is the third tier of football in England. McBean attended a match against Swindon Town on August 6 and he was wearing Coventry City kit. (MLSSoccer.com) The loan move would give the young striker a chance for potential first-team minutes, which he hasn’t received much this season with Los Angeles.

McBean has already started training with the English club as the official loan announcement is imminent. He has appeared in two games for the Galaxy first team this season. He started and played the full 90 minutes against the Colorado Rapids on June 22 and was used as a substitute off the bench for nine minutes against San Jose on June 25.

The 21-year-old forward hasn’t appeared in a game for Los Angeles since June 25, as he has also been unused for six consecutive games. He leads the United Soccer League (USL) in goals this season with 15 goals while he has made 17 appearances for LA Galaxy II. He has the talent to become a quality player later in his career, but he wasn’t getting the game time needed with LA.

This loan move should give McBean more opportunities as he is still a young and improving player. With his young age, Jack could definitely be a regular at the Galaxy or another quality club in a few years. He showed examples of genius during his time in Los Dos and Los Angeles.

The Coventry Telegraph reported that Jack McBean will “initially be viewed more as a development player to earn a first-team spot rather than a ready-made starter”. With the amount of talent he holds, I don’t see him having much trouble getting into the first team and maybe even the starting XI.

It will be interesting to see how McBean performs for Coventry City over the next few months. It’s definitely a situation to watch closely as he could flourish for the English club against good competition. The LA Galaxy and Jack should both benefit from this decision.
