Chester, Pa. (August 28 2012) – Philadelphia Union and  Colombian forward Jorge Perlaza have parted ways after both parties agreed to terms to terminate his contract.

The 27 year-old joined the Union from Western Conference Portland Timbers in June 2012 but found first team opportunities limited, making just two appearances for the club.

Perlaza began his professional career in his native Colombia with Atlético Huila aged 16 and has represented a total of six clubs – including two spells at Deportes Quindío – in a career spanning 11 years.
