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.

"But throughout my career, I have always dreamed of expanding my horizons with a move to America and now it's possible to fulfil that."

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

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
