Gooch to Marseille

CNN/ is reporting that US International Defender, Oguchi Onyewu had been transferred to French club Marseille. The transfer fee is reported at $4 million. It is unclear when Gooch will be joining his new club. It seems that the contracts will be signed over the weekend and he will be starting once he arrives.

I feel that this is a good move for Gooch. Marseille are currently second in Ligue 1, so if they can keep their position, Onyweu will definitely see Champions League football next season. This gives him a higher profile club and league to play in, which should allow him to increase his skills and better his experience. I also think that this move should rule out any chance of Gooch getting a call up for the February 7th USMNT match against Mexico.

Happy for you Gooch!
