CHRISTOPHER MCCOLLUM - Tuesday, February 21, 2012
Stuttgart continues to show interest in Timothy Chandler, and Nurnberg manager Martin Bader doesn't want to dance around the topic anymore.

According to SkySports and Bild, Bader has reportedly given Chandler a four week ultimatum to decide on his own future; whether he wants to stay at Nurnberg, or move to Stuttgart. Chandler's contract is up in 2013, but Bader wants to know right away if Chandler is going to be a part of Nurnberg's long term plans.

If Chandler does want to leave, Bader won't want to let one of his marquee defenders go as a free agent, but will look to sell him in the summer transfer window before his contract is up.

Chandler has shown himself to be a very versatile player this season, starting in both the defense and at Right Wing. He has seen his estimated market value almost quadruple in the past year, after a stellar 10/11 season with Nurnberg and solid performances with the U.S. National Team.

Let the countdown begin.

Anwegmann, Chandler didn't play in the Gold cup. He stayed with his club to be "better prepared for the season". He is not tied to the US yet.

chandler didn't play in last year gold cup (as badly as we needed him instead of bornstein) but hopefully he would play in this years qualifiers to make him tied to the US

Wait, isn't the Gold Cup a FIFA-sanctioned tournament due to its connection to the FIFA Confederations Cup? If that is the case, then Chandler is, in fact, tied to the United States, as he played in the last Gold Cup. If not, he will be once World Cup qualifiers start during the summer. I don't think we have anything to worry about.
