Tomorrow, tomorrow... (updated)

... is gonna be a real goodies day. But I can't start spilling just yet. I only tell you now to make you go crazy with wonder all night, because I am a straight bastard.

MWAHAHAHAHAHA!

UPDATE: As I said in the comments here, the word about Freddy Adu signing with Turkish second flight promotion chasers Rizespor tomorrow is true. I was planning to hold this until the morning by request, but the cat's out now and closing the bag is just tardy. I will still have all the details in my morning MLSS report.

UPDATE UPDATE: Just to ever-so-slightly apologize for messing with you guys and gals so cruelly as I do, here's another non-American thrown bone. I've been informed that it looks like Clint Dempsey is about to get a new, very talented teammate in.... (drum roll)...... Amauri.

The silly season is aptly named, friends. And I actually now have an initial Adu report at MLSS. And that photo below is a depiction of Rizespor's spankin' new stadium by the sea. Get ready for that wind, Freddy.

ONE MORE THING...: I'd also like to add that it was my good buddy Franco over at SoccerItalia that really busted this story this morning. Being the nice guy and USMNT/MLS nut that he is, he was kind enough to give me a heads up to the signing news and then I chased it around. Most of my birdies would never want me to expose them, but Franco? He loves it!

SIDE NOTE UPDATE: The silly season strikes again! I'm told Monday morning that Amauri's old club, Palermo, are trying to hijack Fulham's loan move and may succeed. Not that it's central to what we normally discuss here, but I figured it's best to just update that bit as well.

You have to at least throw us a bone, and tell us when exactly tomorrow is....

So this tells me there is more going on than just Bradley. I'm guessing it involves some big name us players:

Adu?
Donovan?
Jozy?
Howard?
Bedoya?

Thats all I got.

Adu and Feilhaber? What a tease.

Greg Seltzer said...

You all want a thrown bone?

Fine... since it got out, I can confirm that Freddy Adu will sign with Turkish second division leaders Rizespor tomorrow. Medical is done and everything.

Greg Seltzer said...

I'll still have much more info coming on this in an MLSS report.

Greg Seltzer said...

Slight correction: Rizespor *were* the second flight leaders back when I got wind of this. They are now in third place, two points off the top, after today's league action saw two teams pass them with wins.

Wow, there's an Egyptian and a Nigerian...everyone else on the roster is Turkish. I wonder how well he is going to fit in there. Well, it doesn't look like he can get into too much trouble there. Its on the coast in the city of Rize and looks like a traditional town. It's certainly not Thessaloniki, Lisbon, or Monaco.

Jozy to Bursaspor?

Appears that Amauri's agent believes his client is too high above their level to play for them. :)
