Chicago Fire coach Frank Yallop was pleased to get him on loan for the MLS side.
"Grant is a young, technically-gifted player. I watched him play in England, and throughout our pre-season training camp Grant consistently proved that he has what it takes to do well in the MLS. We look forward to him joining our squad once he has recovered from his injury (fractured metatarsal)."
He did indeed recover from that, extended his loan until the end of the year and has scored his first senior goal while with them. He is now looking forward to seeing some familiar faces.
