Gibbs to MLS Soon

Two sources tell me that U.S. defender Cory Gibbs, whose promising career has been interrupted by injuries, is close to returning to MLS and will be available through an allocation process in the next couple weeks. Toronto had been atop the allocation list, but moved to the bottom after claiming Brian McBride and then trading him to Chicago. RSL and San Jose have also dropped on the list because of earlier acquisitions.

[UPDATE] Here is the latest allocation order: Los Angeles, Colorado, Columbus, New York, Dallas, Chivas USA, D.C., Kansas City, Chicago, N.E., Houston, RSL (Borchers), San Jose (Peguero), Toronto (McBride).

So if Gibbs finalizes the deal, the Galaxy will have the first option to claim him.

A Gibbs refresher:

Age: 28.
College: Brown.
Clubs: St. Pauli, Dallas, Feyenoord, Den Haag, Charlton (never played in a league game because of injury).
National team: Made the 2006 World Cup squad, but was dropped after re-injuring a knee in a pre-Cup friendly.

Thoughts on Gibbs?
