Clarence Goodson may become the next American Abroad to find a new club this summer, and Denmark could be his destination.

Goodson is currently being targeted by Odense BK, which is reportedly in negotiations with his current club, IK Start. Odense is looking at Goodson as a replacement for departed defender Jonas Troest.

Playing in the last year of his contract, Goodson has returned from the World Cup to score a goal in each of IK Start's last two games.

In previous editions of the tournament, MasterCard sponsored the All-Star team's announcement, but the company was dropped by FIFA in 2007 after settling a lawsuit.
