Coca-Cola Championship side Derby County have failed in a $500,000 move for Kansas City forward Josh Wolff because the U.S. international could not obtain a United Kingdom work permit.
The veteran MLS scorer was being counted on to provide the Rams with instant offense, but even references like Bruce Arena and Everton coach David Moyes could not help his case.
Wolff has appeared in 48 games for the U.S. National Team, scoring nine times.
“We are especially disappointed as it was Billy’s belief (Wolff) would have formed the perfect partner for Steve Howard,” managing director Mike Horton told the club website.
