Updates on Fredy Montero, Eddie Johnson and Brad Evans Headed to U.S. Men's Training Camp

Fredy Montero update
In the latest update on Fredy Montero's departure, Joshua Mayers from the Seattle Times was able to touch base with Helmuth Wennin, the Colombian's agent. Montero's representative indicated that conversations between the Sounders and Colombian side Millionarios were progressing. The loan deal could last a year rather then the previously reported six months.
The rationale for Montero's willingness to leave Seattle appears to be a desire to play in the Copa Liberadores. The South American club competition would provide a high-profile showcase for Montero.
Eddie Johnson and Brad Evans called up to U.S. Men's National Team
Forward Eddie Johnson and midfielder Brad Evans were selected to join 23 other players at the National Training Center in Carson, Calif. Traning begins on Monday and runs through Jan. 27.
Ex-Sounder defender Jeff Parke, who recently joined the Philadelphia Union, also made the squad.
The U.S. will play a friendly against Canada on Jan. 29.
