U.S. Men’s National Team defensive midfielder Ricardo Clark begins a trial with German Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt today, German media are reporting. The soon-to-be 27-year old was most recently with Major League Soccer side Houston Dynamo and is out of a contract. He was said to be headed to a club in the U.K. Eintracht are in a solid position in the Bundesliga, currently 7th, and well-placed to make a run at European spots.

Updates:
8:30AM: Soccer365.com are reporting Clark stands a mere medical test away from signing with Eintracht through the end of their season.

10:55AM: German reports now say Clark has agreed terms with Eintracht until the end of the season.

Ricardo Clark to Burnley? Celtic?

The Clarets-Mad.co.uk Web site says Burnley boss Owen Coyle is keen to add Clark “on a loan deal,” while Celtic would presumably seek an outright transfer.

Sky Sports previously reported “a host of Premiership clubs” would try to sign Clark, though the article’s authenticity might be doubted seeing as they literally weren’t able to spell Clark’s name and didn’t quote primary sources.

Last summer there were numerous reports out of Italy that Clark would sign with Livorno, with at least one saying the deal was already done. But nothing has been heard of that since.

Whatever his destination, re-signing with the Houston Dynamo is apparently not an option. Clark told the team he had no intentions to re-sign with MLS last month, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Toronto look to cause Houston problems

Posted on 06 June 2008 by Scott Ferguson

Toronto FC will take on Houston Dynamo at Robertson Stadium on Sunday night, hoping to keep up an unbeaten record against Dominic Kinnear’s men.

Before TFC brought Major League Soccer north of the border, the Dynamo were the team of choice for many Canadian soccer fans.

National team members Dwayne De Rosario, Pat Onstad and Adrian Serioux were all part of the club’s 2006 MLS Cup-winning squad, with DeRo and Onstad still on Houston’s 2008 roster. Both were a part of Frank Yallop’s San Jose Earthquakes squad prior to their relocation to the Lone Star state.

Jim Brennan and Toronto goalkeeper Greg Sutton will bring insider knowledge of their national teammates to the Robertson Stadium showdown. Brennan will be familiar with De Rosario from Canada duty, while Sutton has emerged as Onstad’s heir-apparent between the posts for the CMNT.

The Houston contingent both played in Canada’s narrow 3-2 defeat to Brazil in Seattle last week before joining up with the Dynamo for Wednesday’s trip to D.C., a match that was ultimately postponed due to heavy rain. After last week’s home win over Los Angeles Galaxy, Toronto’s Canadian duo joined up with the national squad for the midweek clash with Panama in Florida.

International duty has affected Toronto’s roster in recent weeks, with John Carver’s men looking to welcome back defenders Tyrone Marshall and Marco Vélez, the Puerto Rico captain who received a late red card in his side’s 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Amado Guevara’s Honduras.

French winger Laurent Robert was suspended for last week’s game against LA and is likely to take up a starting role against Houston. Robert will resume the wing-swapping with midfielder Rohan Ricketts that has been a trademark of the club’s play so far this season.

For the Dynamo, defender Eddie Robinson is suspended for Sunday’s encounter. Ricardo Clark, returning from international duty of his own with the United States, was one of the stars of last week’s 1-0 home win over Red Bull New York.

“I think our young guys really worked hard… the average age of our midfield was something like 23,” Kinnear told the club’s website after the match. You had Corey (Ashe), Geoff (Cameron), Stuart (Holden) and then Rico (Clark) was the elder statesmen of the group at 25. Just the effort we got from them tonight was great.”

There have been a number of changes at BMO Field since last year, but one thing Toronto will look to carry over is their form against the Dynamo. 2007 saw TFC steal four points against the Men in Orange, recording a 1-0 home win (their first ever league shutout) and a 0-0 draw at Robertson.

While results across the league on Friday and Saturday would have to go their way, Toronto could conceivably finish the weekend atop the Eastern Conference. TFC’s fans won’t be booking their playoff tickets just yet, but the situation in the East represents a far cry from last year’s injury-racked start to life in Major League Soccer, where the Reds finished dead last in the league standings.

Match time: Sunday, June 8th, 8:30 PM

TV: RSN, DK, MLSLIVE.tv, The Score (delayed 9:30 pm).
