The on-again, off-again, transfer of Honduran national teamer and D.C. United standout Andy Najar is back on again, with D.C. United and Belgian club Anderlecht agreeing on a transfer for the former MLS Rookie of the Year.

Sources with knowledge of the deal have confirmed to SBI that D.C. United and Anderlecht are putting the finishing touches on a deal that would keep Najar with Anderlecht, where he is nearing the end of a month-long loan to the reigning Belgian champions.

UPDATED– D.C. United announced the completion of Najar’s transfer on Wednesday afternoon, with sources putting the transfer deal at $3.1 million with added bonus and sell-on clauses.

The 2010 MLS Rookie of the Year, Najar leaves D.C. United after three seasons with the club. A stint that saw him go from dangerous winger to more recently a starting right back. He is expected to return to his more natural midfield role at Anderlecht.

What do you think of this development? See Anderlecht being a good move for Najar? Surprised to see D.C. United part with a young talent like Najar?
