Career[edit]

Malone was part of Springfield College team before signing with 1. FC Magdeburg on June 1, 2015.[1][2] He made his debut in a 3–0 win against VfL Osnabrück on September 15, 2015, playing for six minutes,[3] his first goal came in a 1:0 win against Wehen Wiesbaden. At the end of the season, Magdeburg decided not to extend the contract; in manager Jens Härtel's opinion, Malone needed regular soccer to develop and the club were unable to guarantee that.[4]

During the summer break, Malone signed a contract with Regionalliga Südwest side Stuttgarter Kickers.[5]

On June 20th 2017;, It was announced Malone had moved on from Stuttgarter, and joined 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig for a two year deal.[6]
