The Columbus Crew have transferred midfielder Miloš Degenek to Serbian top-flight side Red Star Belgrade for an undisclosed fee, the club announced on Monday.
The Australian defender makes his third start for Red Star Belgrade, marking his 29th year in MLS. He made 40 appearances (34 starts) for the Crew from 2022-23, as well as playing for Australia at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar last fall.
“Miloš has been a solid professional over the past 18 months, and for him this was an opportunity to move closer to his family, which was something he wanted,” Tim Bezbatchenko, chairman and chief executive, said in a statement. “We appreciate Milos’ contribution to the Black & Gold and wish him all the best in his return to Serbia.”
The Crew, eyeing a return to the Audi MLS Cup Finals in Nancy’s first year at the helm, sit sixth in the Eastern Conference at the League Cup break.
