1.7.2015: Cedrick Update

I come over? Maybe, maybe not?

On January 3rd multiple reports had the Columbus Crew putting an offer down for 22 year old Real Betis/Osasuna winger Cedrick. No idea what the offer is or the compensation for Real Betis or Osasuna, yet FutbolMLS stated Tuesday that Cedrick would be fine with trying his luck with MLS or respecting any decision the two Spanish clubs make, but doesn't mention a source. Vavel Spain said Monday that Osasuna isn't interested in departing with Cedrick and Cedrick isn't interested in a move to Major League Soccer. On top of that, Osasuna rejected the initial offer.

Even if FutbolMLS ran across another source on the internet, Osasuna isn't budging either way.

Osasuna doesn't believe they're getting enough compensation, in the middle of their season, to find a suitable replacement. They would also have to integrate that replacement into their team.

In addition, Osasuna values Cedrick and would like to keep him on for the remainder of the original loan deal that expires June 30th.

Sounds dead in the water, but possibly a solution can be reached with a better deal, if Vavel's reporting that Cedrick "frowns on a move to MLS" is pure B.S.; Vavel is pretty legitimate so it's probably not.
