- Allocation Order, Bobby Convey, Player Signings, Winter Transfers
Time to make it official. The San Jose Earthquakes have signed midfielder Bobby Convey after weeks of rumors of a deal.
The Earthquakes used their position at the top of the allocation order to get Convey. The team now drops to the bottom of the allocation rankings.
“It is rare to be able to acquire a U.S. international in the prime of his career,” said General Manager of Soccer Operations John Doyle. “When he became available we jumped at the opportunity to add him to our team. He is a great attacking player who will make an immediate impact, and our fans will enjoy watching him.”
Most of you know my feelings on the deal. Its a good move for the Quakes, who have really had a solid offseason in my opinion. They kept a core of their strong defense and improved most of the areas that needed work on.
