Beside DeRo training with Celtic Colorado's Omar Cummings is off to train with Aston Villa. If signed Cummings would join a very young squad that has been assembled by Gerard Houllier. Word is Villa will sell striker Rod Carew in Jan, and perhaps that is Cummings chance. Is this a sign of change from MLS and are they now open to selling league stars. Hopefully, they are coming around to the idea that many of us fans subscribe to and that is to sell older established MLS players and re-invest the money into younger exciting players. According to Colorado Rapids website, the Rapids are only interested in a loan, but if that would be worthless to Villa and hopefully enough money will push the Rapids into a sale.
John Rooney, Wayne Rooney's brother, who trained last summer with Seattle Sounders has officially signed a MLS contract and will join the MLS combine and MLS Superdraft. He has formerly played for Macclesfield Town in England's lower leagues.
