Numerous reports say that Revolution forward Juan Agudelo has signed a pre-contract with Stoke City of the English Premier League. If those reports are true, Agudelo, who is currently nursing a knee sprain, could go directly to England following the end of this season.

The Revolution released a statement today which read:

"We are aware of the stories circulating about Juan Agudelo, but as we’re sure you can understand, we cannot address anything publicly unless an official announcement has been made. But we can state that Juan is near full health and due back to the squad soon to help us as we push toward the playoffs the last three months of the season.”

Agudelo has scored three goals for the Revolution this season since being acquired in May from Chivas USA. He has been one of the main factors in the team's offensive turnaround this summer. Agudelo is in his final contract year.

There are reports that the Revolution are also trying to sign former US national team forward Charlie Davies, who currently plays in Denmark for Randers.

Additionally, the club parted ways with midfielder Kalifa Cisse today. Cisse, who has reportedly been chased by two English clubs this summer, only made six appearances for the Revolution. His guaranteed salary was $400,000, which ate up a considerable chunk of salary cap space.
