Wood has signed a deal that will keep him at the club until June 2018 at the earliest.

He has plied his trade in Munich since 2007, when he moved from the Irvine Strikers in California.

In 59 first team games he has scored six times and provided six assists. He also has eight international caps for the United States, scoring two goals against The Netherlands and Germany in friendly games.

His career has slowed in recent years after a serious knee injury, and he will hope that this move can reignite his international career.

“I’m happy the transfer worked out, and all sides all clear. I had very good discussions with those in charge and quickly realized that Union could be the right address for me. It’s a special club with big ambitions, and I want to show what I’ve got here,” Wood said.

The 22 year old is expected to go straight into the first team.
