USA international on trial at Goodison Park.
Everton have boosted the American contingent at Goodison Park by taking USA international striker Edson Buddle on trial.
Buddle is the third from his country to be on the books at the Toffees, joining Tim Howard and Landon Donovan, who is currently on loan from LA Galaxy.
The other connection the trio share is that they all share the same agent.
“For those asking, my client Edson Buddle will be on trial this week at Everton FC,” confirmed Richard Motzkin, managing executive of Wasserman Media Group Global Football Group.
Buddle has been playing his football for FC Ingolstadt in the 2. Bundesliga, but their winter break means he can commit to Everton for the trial.
The striker has 6 goals in 19 league appearances this season, as well as 2 in 7 international caps.
