Robbie Rogers to Leeds United

Robbie Rogers may be leaving. The often criticized midfielder has agreed to terms with Leeds United, currently in England's second division. However, Rogers still has to secure a work permit in order to join the Championship side. He currently doesn't automatically qualify for the permit due to not playing in 75% of the U.S. national team's game the past two years. He will have to appeal for one next week. Though not official yet, Rogers will almost definitely not return to Columbus for the 2012 MLS season.

The process of finding a replacement for Rogers' left-midfield spot continued Thursday at the draft. Of the Crew's three picks, Ethan Finlay has the most potential to fill in for Rogers this year. Columbus didn't necessarily need to draft any big name college players, as they had already signed Ben Speas, the College Cup MVP, to a Homegrown contract.

EDIT: Robbie has secured his work permit and will now officially join Leeds.
