BERLIN (AP) — German second-division club Ingolstadt has signed United States forward Edson Buddle.

Buddle’s contract with Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy had expired. He was MLS’s leading scorer for most of last season despite missing more than a month for the World Cup. Buddle ended the regular season as the second-highest scorer with 17 goals in 25 matches.

Promoted Ingolstadt is 17th in Germany’s 18-team second division, with 12 points from 17 matches.

American forward Freddy Adu, who did not make the World Cup roster, is on trial with Ingolstadt.
