A few links for Wednesday. Some of these are newer while a couple of these are old and I meant to post before my vacation last week. Here we go.
Greg Seltzer has been dropping transfer goodies over the last two days. One post on Michael Bradley and Terrence Boyd. And another on Charlie Davies, Alejandro Bedoya and Maurice Edu. As for the possible French mystery team interested in Bedoya, it looks like it could be Nantes (and he could be signing a three-year contract).
Bosnia released its roster for the August 14 friendly. The US roster is not expected to be released to the public until Sunday or Monday. Some European reports have stated that Bobby Wood and Aron Johannsson are being called in by Jurgen Klinsmann. Not that it was likely that he would be called in, but Julian Green won’t be there since he was called in by Germany’s U-19 team.
The US’s September 6 qualifier at Costa Rica has been pushed back from 8 PM to 10 PM Eastern.
Grant Wahl has some great details into Clint Dempsey’s move to Seattle. Also casually thrown in there is the fact that Omar Gonzalez is expected to be upgraded to a DP by the Galaxy with a contract extension.
Stuart Holden had his surgery on Monday. Get well soon, Stu.
Zak Whitbread had to leave last weekend’s game on a stretcher due to a concussion, but Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has told the press that Whitbread is expected to return to training this week.
Billy Schuler’s contract with Hammarby doesn’t look like it will be extended when it ends in December. He has played in 10 of Hammarby’s 17 league games in 2013 with only one goal to his name.
Juan Ocegueda has decided to give up playing with the US so he can play for Chivas Guadalajara.
French-American youth player Maki Tall has signed a three-year contract with Lille. As for another youth signing, Arizona native Michael Haynes has signed with Reading’s youth academy.
Hump day, woo wooo.
