Update: Benny Rules Out MLS

Those hoping to see Gold Cup hero Benny Feilhaber suiting up for an MLS club will have to wait for that day, as the Derby County midfielder's agent has told the media his client is not interested in making a move to the U.S. league at this point in his career.

Rumors heated up last week when Derby turned down an offer believed to be in the £275,000 range from Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv for the former UCLA Bruin, citing increased interest from MLS, but that interest apparently doesn't match the player's goals.

"Benny really isn't interested in a move back to MLS right now," said Feilhaber's agent, Henner Janzen. "He would prefer to stay in Europe.

"The deal with Maccabi isn't completely out of the picture yet."
