Babajide Ogunbiyi, formerly of Viborg FF (where he had a generally strong season), is on trial with Karlsruher SC of the 2nd Bundesliga. You might recognize Karlsruher, 15th in the Bundesliga last year (two points clear of the relegation playoffs and four points behind Edson Buddle’s Ingolstadt 04), as the home of once-a-Nat goalkeeper Luis Robles. If the trial is successful, Ogunbiyi would join fellow Yanks David Yelldell, Buddle, Matt Taylor, Robles, and Ricardo Clark in the 2nd Bundesliga.
One American who is no longer in that 2nd Bundesliga is Amaechi Igwe. The former New England Revolution defender was released by Ingolstadt after failing to make any league appearances last year. He has joined 3. Liga club SV Babelsberg 03, who finished 12th of 20 clubs last year after being promoted from Regionalliga Nord in 2010-11. Americans in 3. Liga (off the top of my head) include Preston Zimmerman and potentially Johann Smith who, having failed to earn a contract in his trial with SV Wacker Burghausen a few months back, is on trial with 3. Liga’s Kickers Offenbach.
