Oka Nikolov: Coming to America

The 39 year old only recently signed a new one-year contract extension with Eintracht, but the club confirmed that has now been terminated to allow Nikolov "to fulfil a lifelong dream".

An unnamed MLS club have already made an offer to the veteran and Nikolov feels now is the time to pursue his ambition of playing overseas.

"Eintracht are my everything - I have had a really great time at this fantastic club and I would like to thank both the club and the fans," he said on the club's official website.

A statement from Eintracht added: "We wish Oka all the best for his private and professional future, and thank you for your great achievements."

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
