The Philadelphia Union have re-signed midfielder Warren Creavalle leading up to the 2016 season, the club announced Saturday. Per club and league policy, additional terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Warren is a versatile player who has a great deal of experience in our league,” Philadelphia Union Sporting Director Earnie Stewart said. “His ability to adapt to several positions and his work ethic make him a valuable player to have on our roster.”
Creavalle, 25, joined the Union on Aug. 7, 2015 from Toronto FC in exchange for a second round draft pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft. He played in five games with the Union and made two starts. In Toronto from 2014-15, Creavalle played in 24 games, made 15 starts, and scored two goals. Before joining the Canadian side, Creavalle played for the Houston Dynamo after being selected No. 37 in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft. During three years with the Dynamo, Creavalle made 54 appearances.
Prior to turning pro, Creavalle appeared in 73 career games and recorded eight goals and 10 assists while in college. He played two years at Furman University before transferring to the University of Central Florida. At UCF, he was a Third-Team All-American selection in 2010 and was named to the MAC Hermann Trophy watch list heading into his senior season.
