Regardless of the league, hopefully he does his due dilligence and goes to a stable club where he will see the field often and continue to grow as a player.

If there are any article mentioning speculations for Agudelo please put the link its always nice to read them.
A Agudelo to Spain? How much would that work?
Agudelo to holland seems the most safer and more set for success.
England was always gonna be tough.
Rest of league its hard to call.

I agree with the consensus that the EPL is not the optimal place for Juan's hopeful development into a world class striker. It has not yet proven to be the panacea for Jose Altidore that many hoped it would, and it has in fact seemed to hinder his overall continued development.

I nominate Holland and Spain as the top places for Juan to hone his skills and ply his trade in the immediate future.

Seems Valencia is interested. Would be a good club to move too, don't know how much of an impact he could make right away tho.

Wow awesome thanks for the link Scout! It would be very exciting if Valencia acquired him.

Wow that would be a great place for him. Plus we need more US players in La Liga. Most technical league out there.

Sucks about the work permit but it may be for the best. I'd hate to see him become another Brek Shea or Maurice Edu rotting away on Stoke's bench.

La Liga would be fantastic. Arguably it's the best developmental league in the world. And we desperately need more Americans playing there. If he succeeds he could pave the way for more yanks going there. But Valencia might be too big a fish.

Stoke trying to convince Agudelo to bide his time? Uhm, it's a WC year.

The only way I see this happening is if Stoke still sign him and then loan him out to another club in Europe or loan him back to New England.

Looks like they're still hopeful, but they'll have to wait til March. He'll need to sign a short term deal to stay fit since he won't be moving until the summer.

Mentions Valencia as "leading a cluster of European clubs also keen", so maybe one of those would be a better move?

Valencia would be 10000000000000000 times better. As an attacking player, La Liga is far more conducive to your development than the Premier League. You get more time on the ball, the game is played on the ground, the style is less physical, and teams play positive, quality, technical soccer. For defensive players maybe it's a bit different; Cameron is perfectly suited for the EPL and it's possibly the best place for him to play. But Agudelo is clearly better suited for La Liga. How many good players does the EPL produce these days? Very few. Almost all of the top players were purchased from other leagues. The English style is not conducive at all to player development, which is one of the things holding back US soccer (our style is even more English than the English's).

Yeah, we saw how well it worked out for a young Jozy Altidore to move to La Liga...
