Earthquakes sign midfielder Convey

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The San Jose Earthquakes moved quickly to sign Bobby Convey after the midfielder was released by English club Reading F.C. last week.

The Earthquakes used their position at the top of the allocation rankings to sign the American star, who joined Reading from D.C. United in July 2004 and two years later was among the few U.S. players who impressed at the World Cup.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"It is rare to be able to acquire a U.S. international in the prime of his career," San Jose general manager John Doyle said in a statement Wednesday. "He is a great attacking player who will make an immediate impact, and our fans will enjoy watching him."

The 25-year-old Convey had eight goals in 112 appearances in the League Championship and Premier League, which he helped Reading reach for the first time in team history. He was also the first Reading player to play in the World Cup.

Convey was injured most of the 2006-07 season and had struggled in his return. He was released Friday after not making an appearance for the club this season.
