With the European transfer windows closing up, another crop of Americans have made moves to Europe with the hope of finding some success and improving their standing in the race for World Cup roster spots.
While Landon Donovan has made a great impact since joining Everton on loan, his time with the Toffees is set to end in March (unless you believe the stories that Everton is ready to make MLS a strong offer for his services). For players such as Stuart Holden, Ricardo Clark, Freddy Adu, Eddie Johnson and Kenny Cooper, their winter moves will go a long way in determining just which direction their careers are headed.
Here is our question for you: Which American player's transfer/loan move will wind up being the most successful? We left Donovan off the ballot since his loan is a short-term deal (and since he'd win running away based on his great start at Everton). Cast your vote here:
Which move do we see being the most successful?
Holden has the talent to make an impact at Bolton if he can win the battle for minutes in a crowded midfield, but our pick is Ricardo Clark, who is joining a strong Eintracht Frankfurt side that can use a defensive midfielder like him. Clark's style should suit him well in the Bundesliga.
Which move did you vote for? Which transfer/loan are you the most enthusiastic about? Which move do you wish didn't happen?
