Umea easing pursuit of De Vanna

18 01 2009

Sweden’s power house and former home of Marta are cooling down their chase to nab Australian Lisa De Vanna. The Australian international scored 4 goals in 4 games in the 2007 World Cup, and was named to the 15 player All-Star team. According to Daniel’s translation, Umea lost money in 2008 and is not interested in jeopardizing the clubs future in order to sign her. Umea averaged about 2,000 fans in 2008 and will go into 2009 with no Marta. Lisa De Vanna’s agent has been in touch with the Washington Freedom, so the WPS looks much more likely than it did a month ago.

*Also, Canadian international DF/MF Candace Chapman was tabbed as a Discovery Player by the Boston Breakers
