The one-time youngest player to play in MLS is back in the league. Wednesday the San Jose Earthquakes signedBobby Convey, less than a week after he was let go by English Championship side Reading. San Jose had the first MLS allotment slot, and used it on the former DC United midfielder, who debuted as a 17-year-old in 2000.
Convey was contributor on Reading's record-setting 2005-06 season, where it set Championship records in earning the club's first promotion to the English top flight. Convey scored seven goals in 45 league games that season, but failed to find the back of the net in 29 Premier League appearances in the next two seasons.
