After a deadline day that saw minimal action from the Philadelphia Union, the team have earlier announced the signing of have acquired Toronto FC defender Warren Creavalle in exchange for a second round pick in next years MLS SuperDraft.
Crevalle was the 37th pick back in 2012 by Houston and was later traded to Toronto in 2014. Since the move he has started 15 games and scored two goals, adding to his 78 total appearances. Whilst predominantly a right back, he has shown great versatility in defensive midfield roles throughout his career.
What could really be a big bonus for the Union here is that during his three year career, he has only ever been red carded once. In a team that seems to have more booking woes than any other, someone of such great composure is a fantastic asset to the team. The Right Back should effectively replace Williams whilst adding a little more depth should the likes of Carroll or Edu fall injured.
It’s yet to be stated if the new signing will be available for tomorrow’s showdown against Orlando.
