Former MLS and Kansas City Wizard standout Eddie Johnson will be returning to the states to play soccer in 2012.  The only question that remains is which team he'll be suiting up for.

Eddie will look to get back to his old form, as his absence from MLS hasn't gone as well as he'd hoped. His last goal in major competition was in 2010 for Greek side Aris FC.

Johnson had tremendous success as a Kansas City Wizard in 2005 and 2006, which led to greener pastures for the Florida native.  But after failing to score any goals for EPL side Fulham FC, Johnson was forced out.

Most recently, Johnson was technically a part of Mexican side Puebla, but never suited up one game for the club.

Terms and conditions of the deal were not disclosed, but we will all know tomorrow where exactly Eddie's future will be.  If not Kansas City, Dallas may be an option, a club the former U.S. striker spent four seasons with.
