After the lengthy wait to have their chance to impress U.S. men's national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, it appears George John and Omar Gonzalez will have to wait a bit longer.
Both John and Gonzalez are skipping national team camp in Arizona to attend to potential winter moves. John has left the country to pursue a potential transfer while Gonzalez is mulling over loan opportunities.
Seattle Sounders defender Jeff Parke and midfielder Brad Evans were called in to replace the two centerbacks in the camp.
John is entering the final year of his MLS contract, making a winter transfer move very likely. A Gonzalez loan deal is a bit more surprising, though he has been linked to interest from Mexico and various clubs in Europe in the past.
