Is Carlos Bocanegra on the Move? It seems the rumors are swirling that Bocanegra is moving from Rennes to Saint Etienne. After having a successful season last year, Bocanegra has found himself on the bench for most of this season under new coach Frederic Antonetti, and a loan to League 1 strugglers Saint Etienne will both help him be ready for South Africa and give him a chance to prove his value in a possible summer transfer.
Has Hull Given up on Jozy Altidore? Maybe. By signing Zaki from Egypt and signaling that they may also be making a move for his compatriot Mido, Hull seems to be moving away from Altidore as the solution to their lack of goals. The signing of Zaki, one of the great head-cases in the sporting world, indicates how desperate Hull coach Phil Brown is to find some goals from any source. Altidore has talent, and his size and speed are rare weapons, but he is very far from a finished product at this point. It looks like Jozy will have to either commit himself to developing more on the training pitch or with a different team before he can really get some quality minutes in a major league.
