Former Fulham striker Johnson set for MLS return

Eddie Johnson will be back playing Major League Soccer next week after signing a deal with the league.

Eddie Johnson will be back playing Major League Soccer next week after signing a deal with the league.

The 27-year old will be assigned to a club via an allocation process on Thursday and will once again take the field in North America’s domestic league after he left Sporting Kansas City for Fulham in 2008.

Since departing MLS, where he started out with FC Dallas in 2001, Johnson had loan spells with Cardiff City, Aris Thessaloniki and Preston North End during his time at Craven Cottage.

Johnson could end up at Chivas USA, who sit on top of the allocation order, but their recent acquisition of Juan Pablo Angel suggests they do not need another striker.

The Goats have so far passed on returning USA internationals Benny Feilhaber And Freddy Adu since former number one allocation holders Chicago Fire took Charlie Davies in February. Houston Dynamo are next in line whilst Toronto FC and the Fire hold the second and third spots.
