A move to Major League Soccer by Fiji Soccer striker Roy Krishna has been blocked by the Wellington Phoenix.
According to Herald Sports, Colorado Rapids Coach Anthony Hudson is keen to sign Krishna.
However Rapids and Phoenix have been unable to agree on the financial terms for Krishna’s release, with the Phoenix believed to be asking for a transfer fee of between $750,000 and $1 million.
Sources in North America have indicated Colorado offered a six-figure sum but weren’t prepared to meet the Phoenix’s final price tag.
A move would have been massive for Krishna as he would have become the first player from an Oceania Island nation to play in the MLS, and could probably have doubled his salary.
The MLS salary cap is US$4 million, while the A-League’s is A$2.9 million.
