BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, January 16, 2012
Over the weekend agent Richard Motzkin confirmed via twitter that his client, Edson Buddle, would trial this week with Everton.
Buddle, 30, is still under contract with 2.Bundesliga club Ingolstadt but he was dismissed from the team in December presumably to find a new club.
Buddle has seen increased time with the US national team since 2010 when he surprisingly made the World Cup team after a terrific start to the MLS season that year with Los Angeles.
The New Rochelle, New York native has represented the United States national team 10 times and he has three goals. He scored the opening goal in the team's final game of 2011 in a 3-2 win over Slovenia.
Prior to moving to Europe to play for Ingolstadt, Buddle played for Columbus Crew, New York Red Bulls, Toronto FC, and the LA Galaxy. In his MLS career he has scored 90 goals.
