Everton is in dire need of attacking help, and once again turned to an American to try and help turn things around.
The Toffees have handed Edson Buddle a week-long trial, and will be hoping to find a goal-scoring bargain at a time the squad is struggling to generate goals.
If Buddle does wind up signing with Evrton, he would be reunited with Landon Donovan, who he partnered well with during his dream 2010 season in MLS. Donovan is off to a flying start since rejoining Everton, provided a much-needed spark to the attack, and he could have an even bigger impact on the Toffee offense if David Moyes adds Buddle to the mix.
Buddle had enjoyed success with German second division side FC Ingolstadt, and also re-established himself as a factor in the U.S. national team pool, but a coaching change at Ingolstadt has paved the way for an early departure from the club he left MLS to sign with more than a year ago.
What do you think of Buddle potentially joining Everton? Think he could do well for the Toffees?
