It's been an interesting day in which a lot and basically nothing has happened at the same time. Here's the details.
First came this tweet from the official Montreal Impact twitter feed:
PRESEASON: Brian Ching has asked the club to leave training camp for a few days due to personal reasons #IMFC #MLS— Impact de Montréal (@impactmontreal) February 13, 2012
Next, there was this tweet from FOX26's (Houston's FOX affiliate) Sports Director Mark Berman:
MLS sources tell FOX26 Sports the Dynamo are in advanced talks with Montreal that would send the rights to Brian Ching back to Houston— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) February 13, 2012
Finally, a full article posted on FOX26's website:
League sources also told FOX 26 the Dynamo are in the advance stages of contract negotiations with Ching that would enable the Dynamo to bring him back to Houston.
A new contract agreement between the Dynamo and Ching must be agreed upon before the trade can be consummated.
So here we go again. Either there is something about the happen very soon or people are going to get in a furor again and get their feelings hurt if a deal can't be reached. If the Dynamo can get Ching's right for a reasonable cost and they are able to rework his contract to not annihilate what cap space Houston has left, it's a great move. We shall see.
