OGUCHI ONYEWU has just returned, but can leave again.
The American defender returned to Milan after an unsuccessful loan spell with Dutch side FC Twente but the Rossoneri have no intention of possessing him as he could be loaned out again, this time to Portugal.
According to the Belgian media and the site of the Portuguese newspaper A Bola, Sporting Clube de Portugal (known also as Sporting or Sporting CP) have shown interest in the 29-year-old center back.
Gooch joined Milan from Standard Liège in 2009, but made only one official appearance – in the Champions League against FC Zurich. He suffered a season-ending injury at the beginning of the 2009/10 term.
If Onyewu goes on loan before the start of pre-season, Massimiliano Allegri will have only two first team center-backs in his squad: Alessandro Nesta and Daniele Bonera; Primavera boy Rodrigo Ely will join them.
