Baxter has been a free agent since parting ways with Plymouth Argyle last November after only 4 months. He's joined them after being released at the end of a 1-year contract by Oldham Athletic, the club who took him on in 2018 after Everton helped the troubled player get rehabilitated into the professional game the season before.
Baxter had suffered two drug bans with Sheffield United, who terminated his contract as a result in 2016. Bill Kenwright was instrumental in first finding him work with Everton in the Community, then securing for him a 1-year contract with the Under-23s to help him get him back in shape once his playing ban was over.
Since 2011, the United Socer League (USL) Championship has been the second tier of professional football in the United States, under the MSL. Founded in 2018, 901 FC made its debut in the USL Championship in 2019. Tim Howard looks only on the positives, saying of his former clubmate:
“Jose is a generational talent. His technical ability and toughness are unquestioned at the highest levels of world football. With experience in the English Premier League and Championship, we're excited to have him be an integral part of our midfield.”
