Feilhaber to Israel?

Gold Cup hero Benny Feilhaber may soon be leaving English soccer in favor of a move to the Middle East. English media is reporting that Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv has offered the Derby County midfielder £275,000 (roughly $538,000) to join up with their side.

The U.S. international, who turns 23 on Saturday, has been stuck on the bench for much of his tenure with Premier League relegation-favorites Derby County, making 1 start and 7 appearances as a substitute since his £1 million move to club last summer.

Why is it that no MLS teams are trying to lure the talented youngster? Too expensive?
