TIM HOWARD WILL join MLS side Colorado Rapids this summer after 13 years in the Premier League with Everton and Manchester United.

The 37-year-old Toffees’ goalkeeper lost his starting place to Joel Robles earlier this season and speculation surrounding a return to his native USA quickly began to swell.

Howard played in Major League Soccer before, spending five years with Metrostars before moving to Old Trafford in 2003.

Initially arriving at Everton on loan, he’s been there permanently since 2007.

He’s an iconic US international, having represented his country more than a hundred times. His performance during the 2014 World Cup round of 16 clash with Belgium where he made a record-breaking fifteen saves, drew huge admiration.

Colorado need all the help they can get.

His new side have struggled in recent seasons, finishing as the worst team in the Western Conference last term.

Inevitably, there was plenty of positivity surrounding the Howard announcement though his new team-mate, Kevin Doyle, did see an opportunity to remind him of a moment that occurred at Goodison Park in October 2009.
