Onyewu heading back to France

It seems every team in the EPL was after Oguchi Onyewu, but in the end the "Gooch" decided to say "au revoir" to all those offers and head back to France.

Onyewu played his first professional ball with French team Metz back in 2002. Although he didn't get much playing time, he must have liked something about the country as he has now signed with famed club Olympique Marseille. The club offered $4 million to his current club Standard.

This move will give Onyewu playing time in a strong national league and regular play in the Champions League. All of which will make him an even better central defender.
