Jozy On Loan?

Some Jozy news is popping up today around the net, the first being a rumor from Spanish paper Marca that the young American is set for a loan move to Spanish side Valladolid.  It seems Jozy took part in a team dinner where he bid farewell to his Villareal teammates in preparation for the loan (sounds a little fishy to me).  If it’s true, you’ve gotta think that the reason he’d be loaned out would be to get significant first team minutes, so a loan could be positive if it results in PT.

Another conflicting report from NBCsports has the news that Jozy is set to make his debut for Villareal this weekend against Osasuna.  Apparently due to a bit of an injury crisis in the Submarine’s attack (Pires and Rossi are reportedly both out, as well as Nihat Kahveci), Jozy has moved up in the depth chart and is considered an option for the squad.

My Thoughts: Doesn’t matter where Jozy ends up, as long as he gets a chance to hit the pitch.  Sure, a dream partnership of Rossi/Altidore will give any USMNT fan some excitement, but perhaps it’s a little unrealistic at this stage.  Altidore just needs to develop and adjust to the La Liga game, and if that means donning the Valladolid shirt, so be it.

What do you think of the rumors? Bogus? Will we see Jozy on Sunday?

  1. It doesn’t make sense that Villarreal would loan him out with the current injury crisis at forward they are experiencing. If everyone was healthy and in form, it would make more sense but with the current circumstances, no.
