Eddie Johnson-to-MLS deal falls through

Former US international and MLS striker reneges on verbal agreement and ends negotiations

NEW YORK -- On Tuesday, it appeared that former US international Eddie Johnson was on his way back to MLS; however, the league has revealed that the deal has fallen through.

“We had reached agreement, subject to formal documents,” MLS Executive Vice President of Competition and Player Relations Todd Durbin told MLSsoccer.com on Wednesday. "It’s unfortunate the player did not want to conclude a formal agreement, but we wish him well in his future endeavors."
