Onyewu back with Liege after Fulham talks stall
BRUSSELS, Belgium -- United States defender Oguchi Onyewu will join Standard Liege's training camp in Portugal after a transfer to Premier League club Fulham broke down.
The 24-year-old Onyewu met with Fulham officials Wednesday but a deal couldn't be reached, Liege said on its Web site.
Belgian daily La Libre said Fulham's offer of $1.97 million was not enough for Onyewu, who was also in talks with AC Milan.
Onyewu has one goal in 17 international appearances. He was ejected at last year's World Cup for a foul that led to the go-ahead penalty kick in Ghana's 2-1 victory, which eliminated the Americans in the first round.
Onyewu, from Olney, Md., has played for Standard Liege in Belgium since 2004.
