According to the Denver Post, which oddly and usually doesn’t pick up Rapids stories, Rapids striker Omar Cummings is Aston Villa bound for a training session with an eye on perhaps more.
Rapids managing director Jeff Plush on Monday said the team has allowed the 28-year-old Cummings to train with EPL’s Aston Villa, but stopped short of saying they’ve loaned him outright.
Though they get him back this weekend, Villa have been without the services of Gaby Agbonlahor for most of the early part of the campaign and are sorely in need of a speedy striker option up top.
Also interesting about this is that Stan Kroenke has developed Arsenal and not Villa as a sister club (is that what they’re called?) to Colorado.
(Reaching out for more comment now….gotta love the TSG community, thanks to “BW” for this info.)
(And since it’s a holiday week, I’ll echo my long standing comments. Let’s get on Barack America to annex Jamaica. Beyond access to rum and other things, the USMNT gets access to Omar Cummings, Ryan Johnson, Ricardo Fuller and Dane Richards. Forward problems, at least temporarily, solved!)
