USA u20 international Bijev is a pacy forward with a real eye for goal. He's at his best when playing on the shoulder of the defence, making darting runs in behind where he can utilise his pace and excellent finishing.


Villyan was born in Bulgaria and moved to America when he was young. He has duel citizenship having gained a US passport when he was 17. He signed for the Reds in the summer of 2011 after making a big impact whilst on trial, netting five goals in two pre-season games. What makes it even more impressive is that he only played a half in each game.


He signed an initial three year contract but unfortunately work permit issues meant he had to be loaned out to Fortuna Dusseldorf for the 2011-12 season. An ankle injury restricted his progress and he made just one appearance for their first team, spending most of the season with their second side, where he scored four goals in 16 appearances.
