Rumor Round-Up July 14, 2013

Here's the latest rumors throughout MLS:

Canadian de Jong impresses MLS sides:

26 year old Marcel de Jong is turning heads with his performances at the Gold Cup. Although Canada has been eliminated from the competition, a source says a few MLS sides are interested in the defender/midfielders services. Marcel is currently with German Bundesliga side Augsburg and his market value is listed at 1.1 million Euros, making it seem unlikely for a team to nab him unless they want him to be a Designated Player.

Agudelo drawing more interest: 

Although the young American player has gone on training stints with Stuttgart, Liverpool and Celtic in the past few years, he has yet to step foot in a professional game for a European team. And that might stay par for the course as MLS Transfers has learned that Argentinean side Rosario Central are looking into drawing the player to South America to further his development. At only 20 years old, could this be the move that could really help Agudelo to his European dreams?

Houston ready to pounce on Brentford striker:

Source says the Dynamo are ready to send a bid to English club Brentford for forward Clayton Donaldson. Donaldson scored 24 goals for the club last season and is apparently looking for a move to a bigger club. Interest was first reported by Sky Sports.

Tim Cahill to...Moscow?:

We'll keep the strangest news for last as a source from Russia contacted us to let us know that a possible January loan move to Dynamo Moscow could be in the works for the New York Red Bulls midfielder. Luke Wilshire, a fellow Australian international who plays for Dynamo Moscow has apparently suggested to head coach Dan Petrescu to take a look at the 33 year-old midfielder in the winter transfer window. Petrescu, who surely knows of Cahill, as he played in England from 1994-2002, could be keen on making a move as Cahill has stated that he would a consider a loan to keep in shape for the 2014 World Cup. More news on this front as we get closer to the winter.

Other rumors: 

Multiple outlets have reported Jonathan Bornstein might be heading to Chvias USA. We have spoken to a contact close to the situation and they had no comment on the situation.

So what do we think about a possible Agudelo move, or a new Dynamo forward? Let us know in the comments below.
