MLS Star Omar Cummings Set To Train With Aston Villa
Yet more activity has arrived from MLS and this time it surrounds Colorado Rapids star Omar Cummings and a possible loan move to Aston Villia.
Cummings scored an impressive 14 goals for the MLS team last term and has caught the eye of many in Europe.
Rapids coach Gary Smith had said “Aston Villa contacted us a few weeks ago with interest to see Omar up close. “After discussing the opportunity with Omar, we felt it would be a good chance for him to get a leg up on preseason training and at the same time get the experience of training with a Premier League club.” Cummings is only 28 and if he has a successful spell in the midlands we could get used to seeing him feature in the Premier League.
Come this years transfer window, it remains to be seen how many MLS stars will be linked to England. Big names Landon Donovan & David Beckham were linked heavily, while not so well known names such as Robbie Findley, have arrived in England and signed for clubs.
