Cummings is Goings

After it seemed that Gerard Houllier was keen to finalise a loan deal for Omar Cummings, with the Jamaican impressing the French manager whilst on loan at Villa Park, it has now been confirmed that the club have missed out on the Colorado Rapids striker. Problems obtaining a work permit appear to have been the stumbling block and Cummings is now set to return for pre-season with his MLS employers. The impending big money signing of Darren Bent may well soften the blow for Houllier who was admittedly keen to sign the forward, on a loan deal at the least, but it would have been nice to see what he had to offer to the club. Good luck to you Omar!
