Eddie Johnson Loaned to Cardiff City

U.S. International and Fulham also-ran Eddie Johnson is on his way to Wales in season long loan deal to the FA Cup runners-up.

Johnson, who has seen no firt team action in months, could hopefully get some serious playing time. To be honest, I am surprised it took Roy Hodgson this long to loan out the young American.

In the meantime, Johnson could get some significant playing time with Cardiff, a mid-table Championship team that could use some striker help. If you recall, Cardiff supposedly made a transfer bid for Kenny Cooper of FC Dallas. The Championship may actually be more suited to Johnson, at least right now. Hopefully it will boost his confidence and make U.S. National Team Coach Bob Bradley's faith in Johnson a bit mroe justified.
