Taylor Twellman: New England turned down a rumored $800K bid from Preston North End for TT's services. Eric Wynalda is happy.
Guillermo Barros Schelotto: There were shenanigans in Guille's contract signing with the Crew, and he isn't too happy about them. Sounds like some misunderstandings, but it also sounds like he wasn't committed to staying in Columbus for that long. Hard to tell, but Goff puts his return at 50/50.
Franco Neill (Argentina, Argentinos Juniors), Matias Cordoba (Argentina, Argentinos Juniors): Neill should be going to DCU officially this week, with Clarin breaking the news that Cordoba is also heading to Real Salt Lake in a similar deal. It's been reported that it's a $60K loan with an option to buy. I talked about El Enano yesterday, but here's a little info on Cordoba. He's a 2-way midfielder who has been recently injured. The other Argentines RSL signed worked out fairly well, hopefully they'll get lucky here as well.
Matt Pickens: He left USMNT camp to go on a trial with (supposedly) Norwich. He's out of contract with Chicago.
Ramiro Corrales (USA, Brann of Norway): He's in camp with the USMNT and is rumored to be coming home to MLS. Houston still holds his rights from the Earthquakes v.2.0 days.
