New York Cosmos shoot down links to Georgios Samaras...for now

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Georgois Samaras has been linked to the New York Cosmos several times this season, but according to COO Eric Stover, the Greek center forward won't be joining the boys in green in time to help them chase the 2015 title:

"Sami is a great player that could definitely help our club. At the moment we don’t have an available international roster spot and won’t be making any roster moves the rest of the year."

I was fairly certain the the club still had one available international spot following the release of Mads Stokkelien, with only six of them in use as far as I can count. Regardless, it sounds as if the roster we currently have will be what we're rolling with for the remainder of the 2015 season.

That said, the fact that Samaras was in attendance on Sunday would seem to bode well for a future signing. This one is worth watching as the season winds down, for certain.
