The U.S. drew with Guatemala on Tuesday in a World Cup qualifying match. On the transfer front, there weren’t any major moves but as usual, the rumor mill was active.Tim Howard: Over the last few weeks there has been speculation that Everton boss David Moyes could be heading out in order to fill the vacant role at Tottenham, however, the manager is now scheduled to sign a new three-year deal which will keep him at Goodison Park. Moyes is one of the longest tenured managers in the Premier League, having just celebrated his tenth year with the Merseyside outfit.
Brad Guzan: The goalkeeper may have a few more games with Aston Villa after all. Despite releasing Guzan a few weeks ago, the club is considering bringing the keeper back due to its shortage of top flight options. Regular first team starter Shay Given is being courted by Queen Park Rangers and if he were to depart, there would be a pretty big hole in goal. Guzan may be able to fill that hole.
Terrence Boyd: Boyd completed his move to Austrian club Rapid Vienna early last week. The Borussia Dortmund reserve was rumored to be leaving Germany in favor of Austria and the move was sealed as he signed a contract that runs through 2015. Boyd will not only have the opportunity to play in the first team but with the club’s 2012 finish, he’ll have a chance to gauge his abilities against Europa League competition.
Jermaine Jones: Schalke 04 is still courting Salomon Kalou, but the Chelsea man is reportedly on Liverpool’s list as well. Kalou worked with new Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers while the two were at Stamford Bridge, however, the Ivory Coast star apparently wants to leave England altogether which should give Schalke the leg up.
Maurice Edu and Carlos Bocanegra: Rangers will be listed as “Club 12” when the new SPL schedule is released on Monday. The club has to re-apply for league membership and will be doing so within the next 48 hours. “The Rangers Football Club” is the new name of the entity that not only has to re-apply but also win the vote of seven of the other 11 clubs. With all of this commotion there is some confusion as to how concrete the player contracts are. With the club now “changing” names and re-applying, some reports suggest that no player is contractually obligated to play for Rangers. Only time will tell where the two stars will end up.
