Maurice Edu doesn’t want to go out on loan and wants to fight for a spot at Stoke City.
Stoke City also made some late attempts at buying Juan Agudelo from the New England Revolution, but Agudelo will have to wait until January to make the move to the Premier League. And I missed this a couple weeks ago, but he is rumored to to be making around $600,000 once he gets there.
Finally found some highlights of Sacha Kljestan’s goal from the weekend in Anderlecht’s 4-3 loss.
Ben Spencer came off the bench and made his debut at Molde FK over the weekend. The previous link also has some highlights with Spencer almost getting the assist around the 5:00 mark.
