U.S. World Cup striker Edson Buddle has been in Europe for most of the winter, in search of a big payday after finishing out his MLS contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy.
He has found that payday, and it has taken him to Germany.
Buddle is set to sign with German second division side FC Ingolstadt, sources told SBI on Saturday evening. Buddle was en route to Germany to finalize the contract with a club currently battling relegation in Bundesliga 2.
This development puts pressure on the Los Angeles Galaxy, who must now sign a striker after losing Buddle and trading away young forward Tristan Bowen. The Galaxy has the rights to Juan Pablo Angel, but the club's latest offer to sign Angel was turned down. With Buddle departing, there will be even more pressure on the Galaxy to make a deal with the Colombian goal scorer.
What do you think of this development? Disappointed to see Buddle moving to Bundesliga 2? Hoping the Galaxy can land Angel?
