The deal is in the bag and Eddie Johnson, K-City's striker leaves for Fulham, a haven for US players, joining the ranks of Brian McBride, Carlos Bocanegra, and Clint Dempsey.
Good move and hopefully Fulham will reap the benefit of Johnson's great strike rate. They need it desperately as Ray Hodgson tries to stave of relegation. They have used Clint Dempsey as the lone striker but he is more of a attacking midfielder. With EJ they will get an out and out striker. He does best when you feed him the ball and it will be left to Fulham's makeshift midfield to figure how to service him.
The deal is reportedly $6m and it is the most money paid for an MLS player.
