EJ Transfer Rumor of the Day

Eddie Johnson may finally, finally be on the move. Yes, that's right - the self-proclaimed Grown-Ass Man, linked with just about every non-MLS team under the sun over the last few years, has reportedly left the USMNT camp in Carson, CA for the friendly confines of Craven Cottage. The relationship between Fulham and the Kansas City Wizards forward has apparently become serious.
Negotiations between the two sides are ongoing, but it appears to be a good bet that EJ and his bling will become the fifth American on the books with Fulham, joining fellow Yanks McBride, Bocanegra, Keller and Dempsey. Derby County had also be mentioned as a serious contender for the 23-year-old's services in recent days, but have dropped out of the running.

Will Fulham be willing to break their own record for highest transfer fee paid for an MLS player? (Dempsey was acquired for $4 million over a year ago.)

Where does this leave the Wizards for 2008?
