Brunner Finally Lands in Columbus

March 18, 2009

The long rumored trade for Eric Brunner is complete. The Crew paid a minor sum to Miami FC for the transfer rights and then sent a conditional pick to New York for his MLS rights. Brunner takes the last senior roster slot.

This is a further solidification of the back line. O’Rourke can slide outside if the Crew need cover for Hejduk or Padula and Iro and Brunner can hold down Danny’s spot. This is also depth for the possibility that Marshall is picked for National Team duty or in the event that he transfers this year. The price is right from the looks of it and everyone seems to win.
