Rumor updates in MLS

We'll keep this quick. Here's an update on some items:

New York Red Bulls

@TheRedestBull (twitter) had a talk with defender Kosuke Kimura about a wide variety of topics. Kosuke went back to Japan for a month an then started training again, getting ready for preseason. Kosuke also said he expects a rotating system of defenders that now includes Richard Eckersley from Toronto. Speaking of the possibility of a new DP entering the team, "I have heard some rumors, but nothing (concrete) so far."

MLS Transfers has learned that the Red Bulls have already began searching for Henry's successor. Multiple sources have said that talks with Drogba have happened in the past couple of months as well as a preliminary talk to Valencia striker Jonas to gauge his interest in joining the squad. 

Philadelphia Union

Seems like Fred, training with the Union, is close to getting a contract back with the team. More information to come.

No news has come this way about a certain defender. Not buying that rumor just yet...

Laba update

Matias Laba, currently a DP for Toronto FC, is moving by March 1.

Interest from the Crew was shot down today but more MLS teams are interested including Houston and Chivas USA. Another option is Mexican club Toluca but Toronto wants him to learn the league more. Because of that, a loan to an English Championship team was denying some weeks ago.

More information within the next 24-48 hours is expected.
