Gooch biz (updated)

Several FC Twente-related websites are claiming that a six-month loan plus purchase option deal for AC Milan defender Oguchi Onyewu has been completed, some going so far as to say the club have confirmed this.

However, both Twente and Gooch's agent have told me this is not done (though I get the impression it could be soon).

So... everybody stop counting Eredivisie chickens for the time being.

UPDATE: I've been told by a birdie that Gooch is in the Netherlands for a medical that would complete this move, but have yet to pin anyone down for a confirmation and it's getting late over here. My further input on this topic may be made to wait until tomorrow.

UPDATE UPDATE: I've got confirmation and details.

Looking forward to seeing him in the Dutch league.

Me too.

In which case they might sell Douglas?
Wisgerhof, Douglas, Onyewu... 3 starters, two spots.

Yes, Douglas has several ardent admirers and Wisgerhof has not been as good as he was last season.
