Israeli Move in Bornstein's Future?

Following news that an Israeli club has shown interest in U.S. international Benny Feilhaber, reports from that country suggest that Chivas USA defender Jonathan Bornstein may also be mulling over a possible Middle East move to Maccabi Tel Aviv.Bornstein, 23, was recently photographed in Israel, taking in a game between Tel Aviv and Maccabi Haifi, fueling speculation that he might be on his way out of Major League Soccer. He was voted the MLS Rookie of the Year in 2006 after posting six goals and four assists, helping the club reach the playoffs for the first time in their short history. He slipped back to a more defensive role in 2007, adding just one goal and one assist.

The forward-turned-left-back has also featured in Bob Bradley's national team since the former Chivas USA head coach took the reigns of the program. Bornstein has received 10 caps and scored a goal in his first-ever appearance with the senior squad, a 3-1 win over Denmark on January 20, 2007.
