More Eddie Johnson News

With the news recently involving Bannister Mall and the redevelopment plan, I haven't been as diligent in finding rumors involving Wizards player news. Here's a short article from Thursday about the Wizards 2007 MVP Eddie Johnson, and the continued rumors of his move abroad.

It again talks about the interest from Reading in the US International striker. If he were to join Reading, he'd join up with two other US national team players, Bobby Convey and Marcus Hahnemann.

The article does have quotes that Kansas City Wizards fans have seen before from Peter Vermes, where he discusses the fact that while Eddie is happy here, he doesn't know what's coming up for him. Will he be back? That's unsure right now, but you can bet once the January window opens up, things will definitely start to pick up.

As for his potential move to Reading, I think it'd be a good move for him. Especially if the rumors of Leroy Lita leaving the club are true. That would leave Reading with a hole a striker behind starters Kevin Doyle and Dave Kitson. Johnson could come in and be a good spark off the bench for the Royals.
