Noonan Close to Revs Return?


Pat Noonan is close to re-signing with the New England Revolution after leaving the team during the off-season, sources close to the deal tell Goal.com.

Noonan has seen limited time since his move to Norway. Mostly due to injuries, which has been a major problem for him in recent years. New England really does not need a forward who cannot run or finish, especially if such a player cannot keep fit. While the team could use more production out of it's forwards, Noonan is likely not the answer. Since his first two seasons with the Revs, he has not been able to find that goal scoring touch. He could provide some depth for the crammed schedule coming up, however.

There was also this story on July 3rd in the Columbus Dispatch that suggested the Columbus Crew were looking to acquire Noonan's services for the remainder of the season. Could the Revs possibly be stepping in the way of that, so they could acquire compensation from Columbus (or another team) in a trade?
