Eddie Johnson's long wait to find a new club has come to an end.

The American forward has signed with Mexican club Puebla, where he will team with DaMarcus Beasley and play under former Chicago Fire and New York Red Bulls coach Juan Carlos Osorio. The club announced the signing via its official Twitter account.

Johnson, 27, has been out of contract since the end of the last Premier League season, when his term with Fulham expired. He appeared on the verge of inking a deal with MLS over the summer, but the deal fell apart. After announcing his acquisition only to see the deal fall through, the league stated that an agreement had been reached subject to the signing of documents. Johnson's representatives said that negotiations had reached a final stage, but the two parties had never come to a final agreement.

Four months later, Johnson is in position to seek playing time for the first time since April, when he was on loan at Preston North End.
