Agent: Onyewu to pick new club within month
American international Oguchi Onyewu has enjoyed another sterling season at his Belgian club, Standard Liege, highlighted recently by his scoring two goals in one game for his team. Now his agent, Lyle Yorks, has confirmed that the big defender is looking to decide his next club destination within the month.
The dynamic combination of defensive strength and scoring prowess that Onyewu possesses has made him a valuable commodity on the transfer market.
Despite the fact that a loan spell to Newcastle in 2007 did not meet with great success, Onyewu has otherwise progressed steadily in recent years, locking down a starting spot on U.S. coach Bob Bradley's back line and becoming one of Liege's standout players.
Yorks confirmed that Monchengladbach is one of the main clubs interested in Onyewu (as was earlier reported by Goal.com). However, Yorks also emphasized that the German team, which also already fields another American, Michael Bradley, is not the only suitor vying for Onyewu's signature.
"Oguchi is looking at his options at the moment with a view to take a decision," Yorks explained.
