Buddle latest American headed to Everton

[AMERICANS ABROAD] The latest stop for Edson Buddle in his bid to find a club in England is Everton. Freed to seek a new club by cost-cutting FC Ingolstadt of the German second division, Buddle will get a week to convince Toffees manager David Moyes that he can help his attack.

Buddle, 30, joins fellow Americans Tim Howard and Landon Donovan, who are also represented by the same agency, the Wasserman Media Group.

If Buddle were to sign, that would give the Toffees four members of the 2010 U.S. World Cup team. Marcus Hahnemann is Howard's backup in the Everton goal.

Moyes saw Buddle score the first goal for the USA in its 3-2 win over Slovenia in November.

Buddle, who is in his first full season at FC Ingolstadt, earlier trained with West Ham United. FC Ingolstadt is seeking to cut its payroll and made Buddle available for a transfer

He has nine goals in 31 league games since moving to Germany a year ago.
