Philadelphia Union have acquired General Allocation Money from Colorado Rapids in exchange for midfielder Sebastien Le Toux.
“Sebastien has been a wonderful servant to the Philadelphia Union and we cannot thank him enough for his exemplary time and commitment,” Union Sporting Director Earnie Stewart said. “We want to wish him the best of luck in Colorado and in his future endeavors.”
Le Toux, 32, was selected by the Union on Nov. 25, 2009 in the MLS Expansion Draft after being left unprotected by Seattle Sounders FC. His impact was immediate, leading the expansion Union with a career-high 14 goals during the 2010 season. After being traded to Vancouver Whitecaps prior to the 2012 season, he re-joined the club the following year and provided a career-high 12 assists in 2013. So far in 2016, Le Toux has played in 21 games and scored two goals.
Philadelphia Union are back in MLS action on Saturday, Aug. 6 against D.C. United. The Union next return home to Talen Energy Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 20 against Toronto FC. Single game and group tickets are still available by visiting PhiladelphiaUnion.com/tickets or by calling 1-877-21-UNION.
