Dutch club AZ Alkmaar signs US striker Altidore

- Associated Press - Wednesday, July 20, 2011

AMSTERDAM (AP) - Dutch club AZ Alkmaar says it has signed United States striker Jozy Altidore from Spain's Villarreal to a four-year contract.

Alkmaar announced the deal for the 21-year-old forward on its website Wednesday but gave no financial details.

Altidore joined Villarreal from Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls in 2008 but failed to establish himself at the Spanish club, which loaned him to Spain's Xerez, England's Hull and Turkey's Bursaspor.

Altidore, who played at last year's World Cup in South Africa, has made 39 appearances for his country, scoring 12 goals.
