Eddie Johnson News

Figured I hadn't mentioned Eddie Johnson much so I thought I'd give an update of his situation. As mentioned earlier, Johnson left the US training camp to head to England to work on the move to Fulham. Since then, rumors have flown about what the transfer fee will be, ranging from $3 million to $6 million for the striker. Still, though, the final word has not come through that Johnson is indeed gone. But pretty much ever source that I've seen write on it (too many to link in one post), has said that it's basically a done deal, and Fulham will make Johnson their 5th American signing. With the trade for the number 1 pick, the Wizards look to be moving on as if Johnson is not going to be there as well.

The Fulham Deal is off!!! Fulham signed a U21 Dutch striker this morning. Lets hope this breaks down talks with Eddie.

No they didn't, they signed Marlon King. There's no news that it's off.

anon. is right. Eddie could be part of the turnaround package Fulham is looking for.
