Marcus Storey Finally Set To Join German Team

Updating an earlier post on B-List Yanks abroad, I finally have the full story (hehe) on Marcus Storey and his status with German Oberliga (fourth division) side TuS 1906 Hueslingen. The University of North Carolina grad was apparently acquired by Hueslingen at the start of the season but never joined the team.

That will change next month, according to Storey's German lawyer/agent Bernd Floris Flor with whom I exchanged emails this week. Flor wrote that Storey will be eligible to play for Hueslingen starting in January. The club was late in submitting the proper requests with Major League Soccer, who apparently still held Storey's rights last summer? Can that be true? The Chicago native was the 20th overall pick in the 2005 SuperDraft by the Columbus Crew. He was traded to the Houston Dynamo prior to the 2006 season and then reportedly cut in the 2007 pre-season.
