With the recent news of Deuce, Bradley, Davies all coming back to MLS, I think it's time to look at a few more players that should consider coming to MLS or coming back to MLS.

1. Stuart Holden: He will be out of contract this summer, and I highly doubt any EPL teams come calling for a player that has had two major knee injuries in the past three years. Coming back to Houston may not only revive his career, but revive him physically.

2. Onyewu: The jig is up in Europe. He could definitely help many teams defensively in MLS.

3. Edu: Time for him to resurrect his career.

4. Jones: I think there are many teams in MLS that would love to have Jones for the right price.

5. Andrew Wooten: He has talent. He has offers in Germany, but sometimes an entirely new scenery can do wonders for a player.

6. Howard: Let's face it he is at the tale end of his career. He has always said he would like to come back to MLS, and I think he will with NYCFC.

7. Dolo: Has stated that he wants to come to MLS to play. He won't get a better opportunity with his contract running out in the summer.

8. Diskerud: If he isn't getting serious looks from better European leagues then he needs to come to MLS where the play is at a higher level than the Tipplegaen.

9. Torres: His time at Tigres has been up and down. I think he could make a very good Cm for an MLS team.

10. Herc Gomez: Would love to see him back in MLS to finish his career.

11. Joe Gyau: If he can't break into that Hoffeheim first team next season then he needs to seriously re-think his pro aspirations. He can come to MLS and re-group.

12. Brek Shea: If Shea finds himself out of Stokes first team next season then a move back to MLS may have to happen.

13. Michael Hoyos: He has stated that he would like to come to MLS. He is on loan in the Greek league, and hasn't made many appearances(which could change with his form starting come back). Don't really know if his Greek team have an option to buy. If he goes back to Argentina and sits the bench for Estudiantes then a move to MLS may be in the works.

14. Kevin Hoyos: Same boat as his brother. Kevin is a talented striker. He could be a big pickup for an MLS team.

I actually don't believe Onyewu would help many teams. MLS is a bit too good for him at this point.

Love this list, don't get why Edu hasn't already forced his way out of Stoke. Holden makes a ton of sense especially with Houston. Jones sounds likely from recent reports.

MLS is definitely becoming an option people didn't even consider before. It's great to see.

I'm not so sure, LAG has used the little guy/big guy CB pairing to great effect the past few years with Gonzo and DeLaGarza, so you pair Gooch up with someone that has the recovery speed to cover his lumbering runs toward his own goal and you could very well shape up almost any defense in the league. Leadership and experience is not to be underestimated in largely young teams.

That said, he should have moved here instead of QPR, much higher chance of getting playing time and now, like you said, he's got the stigma and perception of being "too old"

Note: Since both of the Hoyos brothers have never been capped to any US team they both can sign with whatever team in MSL they choose.

LA has stated that they are looking for another striker, and one would think Kevin Hoyos could be a target for them.

I think Howard deep down wants one UCL run. I think he'll give Everton 1-2 more years to get over that hump as thye are knocking on the door. If they start to fade then I see a move but I think that UCL is a notch Howard wants in his belt.

Howard hints that hewants to play till he's 40. NYCFC in 2015 or 2016 would be awesome.

Edu should go back to Bursaspor. He's been hinted of going back on loan there and should really push for a permanent deal there.

Would love to see Shea try to break in at Stoke. This Barnsley loan is a step in the right direction.

Mix should push towards a move to Germany like he was hinted there.

The Hoyos brothers should definitely be in MLS.

Im almost positive Jozy and Howard will be in mls next year. I love the movement of mls. Keeping our talent here, continue growing the league, and most importantly starting to pay $ to American players finally. I think 10 yrs down the road mls will be able to afford young world stars therefore making this league one of the best in the world. I hope playoffs stick forever is part of American culture. With more teams in the league is going to get harder to win anmls cup, therefore more competition and competitiveness in every game.

Parkhurst did not travel with Augsburg to the Canary Islands for their winter training and will likely leave the team. Seltzer is reporting that it will likely be either a 6 month loan to Denmark or a return to the MLS.

Columbus just sent the 4th pick and allocation money to NE for Parkhurst's rights. Id imagine that means a deal is already in place to bring him over. It will be interesting to see if Parkhurst works his way back into the picture. If Evans can make it as an MLS RB then Parkhurst should be able to if shows better form in these next 6 months

But Evans isn't an MLS RB. Which makes Klinsmann saying he is the starting USMNT RB even more strange.

Parkhurst could very well put his name back in the hat. I would take Parkhurst over Evans.
