Fulham - Target USA?
With a list being circulated yesterday, that reputedly named those players who Roy Hodgson feels are surplus to requirements and can be moved on trim the wage bill, one Eddie Johnson was put in an awkward situation.
With the World Cup fast looming, Johnson was hoping to use Fulham as the perfect platform to secure his place in the USA squad. Unless, Johnson gets his move his ambitions could be stifled.
Therefore it`s interesting to hear that one of his USA colleague, DaMarcus Beasley, could be moving to Fulham for exactly the same reason, namely to secure his position in the USA squad.
This morning Fulham, courtesy of a leading tabloid, are linked with a move for the player who is currently at Glasgow Rangers but isn`t featuring, in the first team, as often as he would like.
Speaking about the situation Beasley is quoted as saying,
"My situation isn`t ideal. I`m looking for a move because I want to play. It`s not that I`m not happy with the club."
The same tabloid implies that a fee of £1 million would be required to secure the services of a player who has already sampled life in the Premier League whilst on loan, from PSV Eindhoven, at Manchester City.
Whether there is any real substance in the story remains to be seen!
