LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — The agent of Edson Buddle says the American forward is having a trial at English Premier League club Everton, which already has compatriots Tim Howard, Landon Donovan and Marcus Hahnemann on its roster.
The 30-year-old Buddle, who appeared at the 2010 World Cup, is currently at German second-tier club Ingolstadt.
Buddle’s representative Richard Motzkin said on Twitter that the former Los Angeles Galaxy player is at Everton this week during the German season’s winter break.
Another of Motzkin’s clients, Donovan, has been loaned to Everton from the Los Angeles Galaxy during Major League Soccer’s offseason. Howard has been Everton’s goalkeeper since 2007, and Hahnemann joined as a backup in September.
