Ade’s agent Gary Mellor is also quaoted as saying:

‘We’re in negotiations with the MLS over a move and we are hopeful of reaching an agreement.Ade will meet the Houston manager this weekend and we will take things from there’

The media has been fuelling speculation about this potential move over the past week and was first reported as a rumour by Vital Burnley in our Rumour Mill-Houston We Dont Have a Problem, Ade article a week ago:
