Colorado Rapids chief open to Roger Johnson switch

Technical director Paul Bravo confirms that Roger Johnson has been training with Colorado Rapids this week, and says the club could make a move for the Englishman.

Colorado Rapids technical director Paul Bravo has admitted that the MLS club would be open to signing Roger Johnson.

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers defender is currently training with Rapids ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline.

Johnson, who made 72 appearances for Wolves before linking up with Sheffield Wednesday, West Ham United and Charlton Athletic, could now make a permanent move Stateside.

Asked by MLSsoccer.com about the Englishman's current situation, Bravo said: "More than anything else, he's a guy that wanted to come over. Obviously, with our backline, I wouldn't categorise it as a trial.

"It's more of seeing what Roger is about. If there are any opportunities to strengthen the squad in a position that is strong already, then we'll look to do it. You don't get [Premier League experience] too often, especially in players that just want to train and get a feeling for what our league is about.

"He's a vocal guy so he brings a bit of leadership as well. Any opportunity for a player like that to train with our club, see our club and take that message back is important for us."

Kevin Doyle, a former teammate of Johnson's, joined Colorado from Wolves earlier this year.
