As reported on goal.com, Oguchi Onyewu’s transfer is not yet done. (Finishing the deal while in South Africa on international duty didn’t make sense and made me skeptical of initial reports.) According to his agent, the Turkish giants are interested, but Birmingham City, Monaco, and others are still in contention.
Onyewu has shown a lot during the Confederations Cup, especially in tonight’s win over Spain. The move to Turkey wouldn’t be bad–it’s a step up from Belgium–but I’m hoping his recent form will raise his stock enough to attract some attention from more teams in bigger leagues.
