There have been some stories coming out of Turkey that Clarence Goodson turned down Orduspor this weekend because he (and/or his wife) was concerned about being devout Christians in a Muslim country. Not so, says the defender.
Upon his return to Denmark, he told reporters that the loan suitors were not especially good hosts during his visit. They didn't even take the guy to see Ordu or the team facilities after meeting him in Istanbul, and he also was not too impressed that the club were publicly boasting of a done deal when it clearly wasn't.
Now, I just need to figure out if he's staying at Brøndby until his contract expires at year's end or hoping for a better visit elsewhere.
Also potentially making plans to move out of Denmark is free agent midfielder Conor O'Brien, who I'm told is flying back over to Europe to decide this week between three final suitors. Just to recap, two of his offers are from Belgium and a team higher up the Superliga food chain than former employers SønderjyskE, while the third could be another Danish side or it could have come out of Germany.
