Columbus Crew’s Rogers attracting England and European interest

Robbie Rogers is likely to depart Columbus Crew this off-season as interest from England and Europe continues to roll in.

Robbie Rogers is likely to depart Columbus Crew this off-season as interest from England and Europe continues to roll in.

Rogers’ agent, Shaun Higgins, told the Columbus Dispatch that the 24-year old has emerged as a target for multiple teams in the UK and Europe as well as some in MLS.

Recently, Rogers spent time training with German Bundesliga club Kaiserslautern after his Crew contract expired and there is the possibility for a move abroad although Higgins admitted it could be a touch difficult to obtain a work permit.

"We're not sure if he will immediately qualify or if he'll have to go through the appeals process,” Higgins said of Rogers’ visa situation.

And in response to speculation linking him with Leeds United, Rogers admitted that particular move was unlikely.

"Haven't made any decisions that's just a rumor,” he said.
