The Philadelphia Union have acquired New York City FC’s natural fourth round selection in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft in exchange for defender Ethan White, the club announced today. Per club and league policy, additional terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“In discussions with the staff, it was evident that Ethan was a consummate pro during his time with the club,” Union Sporting Director Earnie Stewart said. “We want to thank him for his service and wish him the best of luck in his future.”
White, 24, played in 28 games with 25 starts in two seasons with the Union. He originally joined the club from D.C. United on Jan. 14, 2014, in exchange for Jeff Parke. He did not register a goal or an assist in his time with the club.
