American Players Abroad

I have seen similar threads in other forums, and I thought it would be good to have a thread where we could follow the progress of Americans not playing at home. There are quite a few more than I expected, which is good to see.

A great site for following these players and also for the US NT is http://www.yanks-abroad.com/. They do all sorts of articles on the performance of our abroad players and their progress. It is well kept and the articles are fairly well written.

Anyone who wants to discuss our players abroad is welcome here, and we encourage fans of the teams these players are playing for to come here and share their point of view with us.

He left Cibalia when they were relegated, went to the Czech League for half a season and now I think he either plays in the lower English leagues or the USL

Everton are insisting that US forward Josh Wolff's training visit to Goodison Park is merely that, despite speculation that Toffees boss David Moyes was interested in signing the Kansas City Wizard.

British tabloid The Sun had reported earlier in the week that the Liverpool side would be willing to pay £500,000 for the 28-year old international.

"Josh is training with the club," an Everton press representative told YA on Wednesday afternoon. "The official line from the club is that he is working on his fitness ahead of the World Cup. It's a similar situation to (DC United's) Brian Carroll training at Blackburn."

Both 'Nats were among the players who stayed behind after the US-Scotland friendly for training stints with European clubs in an effort to stay fit after the end of the MLS season.

Everton have also confirmed that New England midfielder Clint Dempsey will be working with the club temporarily.

Of the three, Wolff would have the easiest time obtaining a UK work permit because he previously held a European passport.

The Toffees currently sit in 16th in the table, after a rough start to the 2005/06 Premiership campaign. In their first 11 games, they have scored only four goals.
Wolff and Dempsey both rumored to be training at Everton, this could be the start of something great.

More on the subject...

PSV signs Indiana forward Lee Nguyen

Associated Press
EINDHOVEN, Netherlands -

Indiana freshman forward Lee Nguyen signed a 3 1/2-year soccer contract with PSV Eindhoven.
The 19-year-old was the 2004 national boys soccer player of the year and was on the U.S. roster for last year's FIFA World Youth Championship for under-20 teams. At that tournament, played in the Netherlands, he was noticed by PSV coach Guus Hiddink.
Two trial periods with PSV's youth side "proved he is a good addition for the future," PSV said in a statement Thursday.
U.S. midfielder DaMarcus Beasley is a regular starter for PSV.

Nate Borchers to ODD Grenland deal all but done



OBTW ...

I think $200K for Bradley is "chump change", but that's personal terms. How much did MLS make on the deal? It looks like the Metros are cleaning house, only it's their "best" players leaving the club, way to go Alexi.
