Americans Abroad transfer rumor roundup: Confusion reigns in Dempsey transfer situation

While some players start up their 2012-13 campaigns, others are still looking for a landing spot.
Michael Bradley: In his first action since joining AS Roma, the midfielder started in a 2-1 friendly win against Austrian club Rapid Vienna and international teammate Terrence Boyd. Bradley then faced Polish side Zaglebie Lubin at Wrigley Field on Sunday. Roma dominated 4-0 as Bradley played the majority of the contest.

Clint Dempsey: There is still a lot of confusion in regards to Clint Dempsey and his situation at Fulham. Liverpool remains publicly interested in the 29-year-old and the Cottagers continue to deny any transfer rumors. With the season less than a month away, a resolution should be on the horizon.    

Geoff Cameron: Stoke City appears to have finally got its man. It is believed that the Dynamo and Stoke have agreed to a $2.5 million transfer fee for the defender. Cameron still needs to be granted a work permit for the deal to go through.  

Brad Guzan: The keeper signed a three-year deal with Aston Villa early last week and started Saturday night in a 1-0 friendly win against the Chicago Fire. Gabriel Agbonlahor scored the game's only goal in the 29th minute while Guzan played okay, as he was forced into just one late save.

Terrence Boyd: The American striker paid dividends immediately for Rapid Vienna as he scored twice and provided an assist in the club’s Austrian Bundesliga opening win over Wacker Innsbruck. Boyd scored from close range early before setting up Christopher Drazan in the 56th minute. He completed his fine performance in the 71st minute, netting his second goal after the shot ricocheted off the Innsbruck keeper.

Carlos Bocanegra, Maurice Edu, and Alejandro Bedoya: All three players made appearances over the weekend as Rangers defeated Albion Rovers 5-1 in a friendly match. Bedoya and Edu both scored, yet the future of all three is still up in the air. Earlier in the week, it was reported that both Bocanegra and Edu would be leaving Rangers but the surprise appearance against Albion adds suspicion to the situation and raises questions about who will suit up for the club this season.
