A few recent American transfers have been headline news over the last few days and weeks, but it may come as a surprise that nearly half of the entire 2010 USMNT World Cup roster will be playing for different teams than they were last season. Of course what this means for the USMNT isn’t much. A lot of players move during the transfer window, and while many of them were American they all moved for different reasons. Some moved up because they deserved it, some moved down because they deserved it. Some gained playing time, some moved to different leagues. A few came home, a few went to Europe. The situation for each player is different, but here is a list of the 11 USMNT players who moved teams since the end of the World Cup in no particular order.
1 Carlos Bocanegra from Rennais to St. Etienne
2 Michael Bradley from Borussia Monchengladbach to Aston Villa
3 Oguchi Onyewu from A.C. Milan to F.C. Twente
4 DaMarcus Beasley from Rangers to Hannover 96
5 Jonathon Bornstein from Chivas USA to Tigres
6 Edson Buddle from L.A. Galaxy to Ingolstadt
7 Jay Demerit from Watford to Vancouver Whitecaps
8 Jozy Altidore from Villareal to Bursaspor
9 Brad Guzan from Aston Villa to Hull City (this says one month but its been extended since
10 Robbie Findley from Real Salt Lake to Nottingham Forest
11 Clarence Goodson from IK Start to Brondby

Although multiple reports linked Michael Bradley to the Turkish club Galatasaray last week, saying that Borussia Mönchengladbach had signed off on a transfer deal, he has instead ended up with a loan deal to Aston Villa where he will join American international Eric Lichaj. This transfer likely means more playing time for Bradley. Altough he had been a consistent starter for Borussia Mönchengladbac through most of the season, he recently started coming on as a late substitute and was getting less and less time on the field. A move to Aston Villa both gives him more playing time, and arguably puts him in a better position to improve as a player. Although the Bundesliga is a very good league, playing for Borussia Mönchengladbach, one of the worst teams in the league would not do as much for his growth as a player as playing for a fairly competitive team in one of the few leagues better than the Bundesliga. The most important lesson in this is just how useless transfer rumors can be. Again it’s not a done deal, but everyone seems as confident about this as they did about Galatasaray and Sunderland before that so I figured it’s worth posting. If true though it surely spices up the mess that we have taking place in the center of the field with Bradley, Jones and Holden all deserving of starting spots and a few others with an argument for one.

Although it hasn’t been announced which club he is going to, it has been announced that Borussia Monchengladbach has accepted a transfer proposal that will send U.S. midfielder Michael Bradley to Turkey. Speculation surrounds the deal saying it is likely he will go to the Istanbul club Galatasaray. It had recently been rumored that Bradley was nearing a move to Sunderland in the English Premier League, and he has been getting much less playing time in the Bundesliga recently so it is no surprise to see him move.
