The day after their SuperLiga win over the Houston Dynamo, the New England Revolution look to resign Pat Noonan…only to then trade him to Columbus, that’s all according to the Boston Herald’s Kyle McCarthy.

The Crew are expected to send allocation money, a first-round draft pick and the rights to swap allocation slots to the Revs for the veteran striker.

A deal could be announced today, if not by the end of the week.

This is the deal that Columbus has been hunting for a while now and to me its a deal they need going forward as they are trying to catch up to New England in the standings. Usually you don’t see two clubs so close at the top of the standings work with one another on a trade like this but New England knew they didn’t want Noonan back and so a trade was going to happen. From what I’ve heard, the Crew were the most interested and appeared to give up enough in a trade for him.

What do you all make of this deal? Crew fans are you excited to get another striker?

    Apparantly this happened yesterday, but needs to be finalized by the league. Although he wouldn't mention the deal by name, RSL president Bill Manning indicated that RSL was in this sweepstakes as well but lost out. I believe at least another couple of teams were also interested in a deal for Noonan.

    This is a great pickup for Columbus because Noonan is a great player and can really help out their attack.
