Eddie Johnson's Rumored Replacement

With the news yesterday, that Eddie Johnson has left the US men's camp in LA, possibly to be finalizing a deal with Fulham, the Wizards look like they could be without their leading scorer from last season. Today, though, comes news that the Wizards are apparently, already lining up a replacement for Johnson, in the form of Colombian striker, Iván Trujillo, of Deportivo Cali. Trujillo, who is currently on loan at second division side, Equidad Club Deportivo, would come to the Wizards on loan. While with Equidad, Trujillo, 'el cholo' scored six goals with the team helping them reach the finals of the second tournament of the 2007 season. Other then that, I haven't been really able to find any information on the player, except that he is currently 25. He is the first guy to the right of the goalkeepers in that picture. It is a little disturbing that at 25 he is not breaking into his first team, but instead having to be loaned out to the second division.

I've been looking for some info on Trujillo myself. I'll let you know if I find anything out.
