Pat Noonan to Columbus Crew falls through

According to this report the Columbus Crew were set to capture former New England Revolution striker from Norwegian side Aalesund, but had the deal turned down by Major League Soccer. The Crew were prepared to offer $225,000 to Aalesunds, but MLS felt that was too much. MLS felt the Crew would be overpaying Aalesunds and turned the deal down.

Noonan was interested in returning to MLS in an effort to re-ignite his international career. Now it looks like Noonan will be remaining in Norway, despite only playing three times for Aalesunds FK. UPDATE: A source of ours got the details mixed up, sorry for any temporary confusion.
