Bocanegra sold to St. Etienne


U.S. national team captain Carlos Bocanegra will be playing for a new team when the French Ligue 1 season begins later this summer.

Stade Rennes announced on its website on Friday that it has sold Bocanegra to Saint Etienne for approximately €500,000.

Bocanegra, 31, had been a transfer target of St. Etienne's during the winter transfer period, but a deal was unable to be reached. He battled injuries last season that cut into his playing time with Rennes.

The U.S. captain during the past World Cup, Bocanegra has not made a decision on his national team future, stating he would continue to make himself available for selection.
