Take Two: You can almost smell the silly blooming.

I am still trying to round out full reports for MLSS on these two (and other) items, but why not go ahead and crank up the ol' transfer Nugget-a-tron 3000 for season?
  • I was told last week that Bursaspor are trying to land Jozy Altidore from Villarreal on a permanent deal. This finally hit the Turkish tabloids, so I figured it was safe to reveal as much.
  • Svenska Fans recently reported thatthe technical directors from AZ Alkmaar and FC Groningen were in the house to see Örebro ace Alejandro Bedoya against Kalmar last week.

    I talked to AZ's Earnie Stewart today and he admitted that he was there - but not specifically to see Bedoya. Of course, that statement may not necessarily tell the whole story (a caught eye is a caught eye, after all), but it's always nice to enter facts into such discussions.
There is much more going on right now, but I shall hold some things in the transfer marinade-inator. We can't let you all get too full up on goodies too quickly.

Speaking of Scandanavian Yanks, didn't you tease an item a while back about a transfer destination for Mikkel Diskerud? With him re-signing for Stabaek, is that over and done with? The US needs an ideas-man in the center of midfield if Bradley insists on running a 4-5-1 (4-2-3-1) formation, and Mix has some skills that could be honed at a higher level.
