Gooch to Sporting Lisbon

Wow, if you are like me, this one came as a little of a surprise. Not so much that he leaves AC Milan on a free transfer because he was never going to see the pitch with them, but that Gooch had offered to play out a year of his contract for free because of the support that AC Milan offered him during his injury. Guess if they aren't paying you, they might as well release you, eh?

Gooch is on the move to Sporting Lisbon, signing a 3yr contract today. Among other players to join are Andre Carrillo, Alberto Rodriguez, Stijn Schaars and Santiago Arias. Oh... I'm missing someone... Yeah, one of the best names in the game, Ricky van Wolfswinkel signed as well. Reportedly, Sporting is also expected to sign French youngster Atila Turan. Not a bad piece of work in the early parts of the transfer window for Sporting.

Expect Gooch to finally get some playing time, and hopefully sharpen up those skills for our suddenly weak backline on the USMNT.
