MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] After starting four games at Sheffield Wednesday -- the first four starts in the English Championship since returning from two knee surgeries -- American Stuart Holden has returned on loan to Bolton Wanderers for its final promotion push. Holden's progress has been viewed positively by Jurgen Klinsmann, who recently dispatched assistant Andi Herzog to check in on Holden, who might be recalled for the 2013 Gold Cup if he continues to play.

Bolton is in sixth place in the Championship with two games to play. The top two teams qualify for the Premier League, while the next four teams play off for the third promotion spot.

Bolton turned down Wednesday's request to extend the loan deal until the end of the season

“Bolton are in a playoff spot, they have one or two injuries, and they want him back,” Wednesday manager Dave Jones told The Bolton News. “He’s got better and stronger as his loan has gone on and I would like to thank him for his services and wish him the very best for the future.”

Klinsmann, who expected U.S. national team regulars based abroad to skip the Gold Cup so they can take vacations, told reporters on Wednesday Holden didn't want any more time off.

    FANTASTIC news..I really like Holden & feel that, at 100% healthy, he can be a MAJOR factor for the USMNT! Really rooting for him to become an integral part of the 2014 US World Cup team!!

    Having met Stu, I can say he is on the smaller side when it comes to my preference for middies, but you cannot say enough about his vision and creativity when healthy!! Good Luck and hurry back to the Nats, in any capacity/position!

    Whoopee, best news USMNT could have. The Germans bring strength to midfield, but Stu is a real soccer player. With Donovan and Holden in midfield, this might begin to look like a Soccer team.
