Kyle Devost: A former Premier League Academy player for SG Quelle Fürth


IFX Soccer Transfer News: Kyle Devost to play soccer in Germany

Last week, club representatives confirmed the joining of former Premier League Academy player Kyle Devost (19) to the first team of SG Quelle Fürth for the season 2021-22 of the Landesliga Bayern Nordost. Devost, a native from Maine, USA spent the last two years in London affiliated to Elite Union Academy. Interrupted by the pandemic, he made the decision to embark on a journey to Germany through the Pro 30 Day Germany with IFX. During his initial 2 weeks of the program, Kyle made a strong first impression during his trials and friendly match with SG Quelle Fürth .

"Signing with Quelle has been a big jump for me quality wise, the football at Quelle is faster and more professional than any clubs I’ve played with previously. It’s a classy group of lads and I love being around them. The environment is great and it’s a very tight knit club," stated Devost.

Kyle, arrived to our soccer trial program in Germany in early July and during the first week trained at our soccer academy with other IFX Soccer players, where he was evaluated to determine which team and level would be potentially a good fit for his level and to help him to get used to the fast paced German style. IFX Soccer has extensive experience organizing soccer tryouts in Europe, particularly in Germany. Devost is a talented center back, showing strong presence on the field, solid technique and great physical qualities. IFX President, Michael Carlson made arrangements with Team manager Thomas Färber for his private soccer tryout and subsequently, with the approval of Head Coach Serdal Gündogan, his signing was made firm.


“Die Dambacher” is an old acquaintance for us. The club from Fürth has been a great IFX partner for the last 17 years, not only providing a professional environment for our soccer academy in Germany but also giving a great opportunity for our international players to train and compete for its different teams in Bayern soccer leagues. SG Quelle Fürth is also known as a feeder of the two most famous Bundesliga clubs of the region: 1. FC Nürnberg and SpVgg Greuther Fürth, with players transferring to and from these pro soccer institutions.

Kyle recently joined his new club and will also continue with his morning training sessions at the IFX Soccer Academy to accelerate his adaptation.

For the duration of Kyle's time in Germany, Kyle will be enrolled in our partner German Language institute which helps him to quickly adapt to the culture and get the most of his experience of living and playing soccer in Germany. From IFX Soccer we wish Kyle the best of luck and success this season and we reiterate our commitment to support his personal and soccer development while in Germany.
