Biography


The son of former USA national team captain John Harkes, Ian was actually born in England before returning to the United States where he played high school soccer at Gonzaga College High School and for the youth academy of D.C. United. Ian served as the club captain for the U-18 and U-16 academy teams. During his junior and senior years at Gonzaga College High School, Harkes served as the varsity captain. He earned the team's Most Valuable Offensive Player in both 2011 and 2012.

Ahead of the 2013 NCAA Division I men's soccer season, Ian signed a National Letter of Intent to play for Wake Forest University, where he competed for four years for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. On January 6, 2017, Ian was awarded the Hermann Trophy, awarded to the best college soccer player in the United States and shortly after he signed his first professional contract with MLS side DC United. He played with DC for two seasons, enjoying his most prolific campaign in 2017, scoring twice and featuring regularly. Having already played for the US national mens soccer U20s, Ian received a call-up for the United States men's national soccer team for a friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina on January 8, 2018. With first team options limited during his second season, he was released at the end of 2018.

Signing a two year contract, Ian signed for United in January 2019 to become the first player of US nationality to play for the Club. Scoring on his debut after coming off the bench in the Scottish Cup tie with Montrose, Ian impressed early on in Robbie Neilson's newly rebuilt team, and was a regular in the side, starting in all four of United's Play-Off matches as the Club just failed to win promotion back to the Premiership.

The following season, Ian slotted in as a regular as United earned promotion back to the Premiership during the curtailed 2019-20 season. On June 23, 2020, Ian signed a contract extension to stay at United until 2022. Playing the following year in the Premiership, Ian thrived under new manager Micky Mellon, finding a regular place in the starting lineup as United consolidated their position in the Premiership in their first season back up.

At the end of the 2021-22 campaign, despite an injury late in the season, Ian was voted as the club's Player of the Year, applauded for his "all-action" displays during a season when United secured European qualification for the first time in 9 years.

On June 30th, Ian signed a further one year contract extension to remain at the club until 2023.
