Report: Onyewu On The Verge Of Move To FC Zurich

The American defender's stint at Milan appears to be over
According to a report in il Corriere dello Sport, USA defender Oguchi Onyewu is on the verge of a move from Milan to Swiss side FC Zurich.  It is unclear whether the move would be a loan or a straight sale.

The American has endured a difficult stay at the San Siro since his transfer from Standard Liège in July 2009.  He has only made one competitive appearance - ironically against FC Zurich in the 2009 Champions League - and has not featured since a major knee injury suffered in October 2009.

FC Zurich are one of the most successful clubs in Switzerland, winning three of the most recent six league championships, most recently in 2008-09.  They are currently in third place in this year's campaign, which would be good for a spot in the 2011-12 Europa League.
