Several with questions about club futures; more Americans Abroad
Alejandro Bedoya might not have been included on Bob Bradley's CONCACAF Gold Cup roster, but there's not a whole lot more he could be doing for his club team in Sweden right now.
Bedoya continued his hot start to the season by netting his fourth goal and setting up the game-winner in Orebro's latest victory over the weekend. He's playing with all sorts of confidence right now, and although he was overlooked for the national team and won't be performing on the international level this summer, the 24-year-old midfielder will surely have his name keep popping up on the transfer radar as long as he maintains his current form.
The European summer transfer window as a whole should be just as active for Americans as the frenetic winter one. As a result, the American landscape in England's Premier League, specifically, could look very different next season.
Take Clint Dempsey, for example, who just polished off the best club season of his career. He must decide if he wants to try and move to a team where he would play in the UEFA Champions League or if he wants to remain at Fulham, where he could potentially play in the UEFA Europa League again. The Cottagers will find out their European fate for sure upon the release of the final tally of the league's fair-play standings.
Aston Villa needs to decide if it wants to buy Michael Bradley outright from Borussia Monchengladbach, and both of the club's American goalkeepers -- Brad Friedel and Brad Guzan -- could be plying their trade elsewhere.
Jermaine Jones is unlikely to remain at Blackburn, as his loan from Schalke has expired. The contracts of West Ham's Jonathan Spector and Wolverhampton's Marcus Hahnemann have expired as well.
As the seasons continue to expire across Europe, here's how the Americans playing abroad -- including Danish Cup winner Michael Parkhurst and German Cup runner-up David Yelldell -- fared over the past week (statistics encompass all competitions):
Cunningham and Gatt were with the U.S. U-20 national team for its friendly against France and missed their club's match on Thursday as a result. Molde and Stabaek both had their games scheduled for Sunday postponed, as a
