  • AGF Aarhus, Benny Feilhaber, Summer Transfers

U.S. Olympic team midfielder Benny Feilhaber has completed a move to Danish club AGF Aarhus, leaving English club Derby County for his third European team in three seasons. The move means he will not be signing with Major League Soccer and the New England Revolution.

This just shows in the end the league could not compete with Aarhus and teams in Denmark for his services. Financial terms of Feilhaber’s agreement with the Danish club have not been disclosed. He now joins fellow american Jeremiah White at the Danish club.

As much as I was hoping he would return to the States and play in MLS I am happy to see him get another shot in Europe. After this past year with Derby County its safe to say any move out of England would be good for him at this point.

What do you all make of this? Sad to hear he isn’t coming to MLS or happy to see him get another shot in Europe?

    I think it's funny that Denmark and Norway can outpay our players. Wait, not funny, sad… very very sad.

    I agree why can't we pay our players enough to stick around.

    Because we have only 12,000 people a game at the stadiums… because Sportscenter doesn't show MLS highlights but twice a year… because nobody buys a non-Beckham jersey… because sponsors only pay 500,000 to put their name on the jerseys (and 3 or 4 teams can't get that)…. because we have a salary cap that might be a necessary evil but is way too low… because even newspapers don't report on MLS unless their city has a team… because…<br />

    well basically because we're still a niche sport. We have to grow the sport any way we can first.
