Eddie Johnson loaned to Cardiff City



Apparently Cardiff City had its heart set on landing an American striker.

U.S. national team forward Eddie Johnson is heading to Cardiff City on a season-long loan. The deal was announced today.

Johnson, who moved to Fulham last winter, made just six league appearances for the Cottagers, failing to score in any of them.

Cardiff City adds Johnson after it’s well-publicized quest to sign FC Dallas striker Kenny Cooper. The Blue Birds had bid as much as $4 million for Cooper, only to have FC Dallas decide it wasn’t selling Cooper.

What do you think of the move for Johnson? Is he better off with the newly-promoted promotion-chasing club in the Coca Cola Championship or should he have stayed at Craven Cottage?
