UPDATE: Twitter makes it true. Wizards president Robb Heineman, via a tweet
, announced that Sunil Chhetri has hit the ground in Kansas City. As first reported last night by the Back Post
, it's looking
more and more
certain that the Wizards are
on the verge of
signing Indian striker Sunil Chhetri.
It has been speculated in this space that this move was close at hand.
Goal.com this morning says the deal is official.
"After Goal.com revealed about the Delhi boy having left the Indian capital on Tuesday evening to fulfill his American dream, Sunil Chhetri has almost completed his transfer to Kansas City Wizards as an official announcement of the same would be done on Thursday evening (US time) following a medical and a P-1 visa approval. A three-to-four year deal is likely to be agreed upon.
A video conferencing has been arranged for the Indian media in Bangalore as one of the owners of Kansas City Wizards - Neal Patterson, has his company's Indian arm based in the southern city."
The attack is an area that was in need of some new blood, Chhetri is a speedy forward who certainly fits that bill. When his signing is officially announced, the Wizards will have one player too many on the roster. Who do you think goes? An international player? Voice your thoughts in the comments section.
