Feilhaber to Derby County - It's official

Benny Feilhaber's move to EPL newbie is complete after he received his work permit from the UK Home Office.

He will arrive in England tomorrow and under go his medical before finalizing and signing his new contract.

The most interesting part about this whole process has to do with his work permit, which looked unlikely at first. However, US coach Bob Bradley stepped in and told the Home Office that Feilhaber will be a big part of future US teams. Turns out that did the trick.

"Bradley played a big part in Benny's move," (Derby's Matt) Reeder continued. "He sent in a statement that Benny was a big part of the future of the US team, and that he has a secure place in the starting eleven."

Congratulations to Benny and nice assist by Bradley.
