Ingolstadt terminates Edson Buddle’s contract

Edson Buddle’s contract has been terminated by Ingolstadt of

Germany’s second division.

Signed a year ago from the Los Angeles Galaxy, the 30-year-old

American scored six goals this season. But he didn’t dress in

December for the team’s final game before the winter break, and

Kicker magazine said then he was struggling with fitness.

Buddle, a member of the 2010 U.S. World Cup team, had a trial in

January with Everton in England.
