Real Salt Lake has another loan in the works.

A week after sending midfielder Enzo Martinez to the Carolina RailHawks, backup goalkeeper Jeff Attinella is headed for the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers.

Attinella, 24, appeared to be RSL's second goalkeeper when he first signed with the club. But the addition of Josh Saunders pushed Attinella down on the team's depth chart.

The loan will be a homecoming of sorts for Attinella, who was born in Clearwater, Fla., and played last season with the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
