MLS reporters saying Chris Mueller, CF Orlando City, has signed a pre contract for a Scottish club once the MLS season is over November. 
 

Some speculation it’s us because of Glass and Ramirez. But who knows. 


So would he sign in November or have to wait until January when the Scottish transfer window opens

It looks like he's only on $110,000 a year at the moment. I thought maybe googling that would settle that it wasn't a go-er but perhaps not.

We'll likely to push to get him in by deadline day for a nominal fee after which its January 1st.

A few Hibs fans seem confident it's them who have signed this lad.

They already have a number of wingers: Boyle, Wright, McKay, Murphy and Magennis.

Reading that two belgian clubs offered over $1M for him in January but Orlando rejected the offer rating him at $3M.

This could be interesting. I dont think it immediately sounds like the kinda thing rangers and celtic do.

It’s us. If Rangers or Celtic signed a player on a pre contract it would be all over the media. Aberdeen are keeping absolutely everything top secret at the moment. Why, I don’t know but maybe just to gain some advantage in ways.

Why so secretive? Getting our hopes up for it not to be us at all. Hibs also have American opener don’t they?

well probably two reasons that Huns/Hibs/Celtic/Dons/Hearts are keeping this quiet. The pre-contract was signed yesterday and whichever club will be trying to sign him permanently now for a knock down price. You probably only announce a pre once you've given up the ghost that he is not available in the next 4-5 weeks.

I don’t think it will be us. But I’m sure someone did say there was expected to be an announcement today?

Over on Hibs.net, one poster claims its definitely Hibs who have signed him and they are trying to get him this window. Ron Gordon has been willing to spend a fair amount on their side this past 12-18 months.

Personally, I'd be very surprised if it were us. Its the type of signing I'd like to see us make though.

Aye I see some Hibs fans 'confirming' it is them 

 

Surely Scott Burns will tell us tonight who it is. He's losing his touch if not.

Fair play to Hibs if true. Does worry me w bit more about the season though if Hibs are going to have a real go and have a number of sellable assets. Victory is so important tonight to give us all hope!

Yeah. If it's us, then Cormack has definitely put his money where his mouth is. 

Fingers crossed it's us but it definitely seems more like a Celtic signing tbh. 

Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs forums all saying it's them now. Cormack and Gordon at Aberdeen and Hibs respectively making noises about spending more money. Savage at Hearts drooling about quality of looming signings, and we're profitable, and now have Anderson on the Board. 

So the scene is therefore set for Celtic, who've said nothing, snapping him up for their bench. 

Kickback MLS experts confirming he's a player. Rapid and a goal threat. They have him on one wing, Nani on the other, which gives an idea of his quality. Again would be an amazing signing for anyone outside Glasgow. I'll genuinely be first to say well done if it's Aberdeen, or even Hibs. But especially if it's us. It still feels like a Glasgow signing though.

From what I’ve read it would be a coup for anyone outside OF. If Orlando turned down 1m bids in January because they rated him at 3m I’d be very surprised if it’s anyone outside OF and if it is fair play for showing some ambition.

i'm more hopeful than some of you that its AFC. Seems like Ramirez MKII to me.... even looks like him.

however now doing my investigatory work and seeing than alan russell doesn't follow him then he's not coming to AFC.

Russell hasnt tweeted anything since early April - probably just nae been online following his misdemeanour.

Daily Record have picked up on it now. Surely only a matter of time before it's confirmed by the relevant club or leaked to the press.

If he's absolutely out of contract then you can sign free agents at any time, no need to wait on windows opening.

But they can't be registered to play until January, I don't think?

I know if you pay a transfer fee to sign somebody outwith a window then you cannot register them until the following window.

My understanding was free agents could be registered at any time but I've never looked into it in any great depth

It would be ironic if the first signing that all Dons fans seem to be in agreement on ends up being for Hibs 😄🥺🤦‍♂️

I have seen this guy in the flesh a few times for Orlando and he was always one that stood out, obviously Nani is the big cheese at Orlando but this guy certainly has ability

If they've not been attached to a team, they can be signed and played. If he's coming from a team, can't be registered til January.
 

see Niall McGinn when he returned...

Orlando City winger Chris Mueller has attracted interest from Belgium. According to a report by The Athletic, RSC Anderlecht, KV Oostende, and OH Leuven have shown serious interest in the 25-year-old forward. The report further adds that Leuven have already made a formal offer for the winger but Orlando have been unwilling to entertain a transfer. 

Mueller has had a phenomenal 2020 campaign and increased his market value to $3.85 million. This season the winger has scored two goals and four assists and is a big part of an Orlando side that is currently pushing for a top spot in the Eastern Conference of Major League Soccer. As a result, Orlando are somewhat reluctant to move the player. 

Another issue is Mueller's contract. The 25-year-old will be a free agent this winter and, in theory, could already sign a contract with a new club ahead of a January 1, 2022 move. Orlando can, therefore, not expect a major transfer fee should they opt to sell Mueller now. Mueller, according to The Athleticwould prefer a summer move to give him time to integrate into his new side. 

This appears to be a real coup of a signing for Hibs.
