Seattle sends Neagle to DC United for allocation money
SEATTLE (AP) – The Seattle Sounders have traded midfielder Lamar Neagle to D.C. United for allocation money.
The trade was formally announced by the clubs Monday. Neagle was a hometown favorite who had played for Seattle for the past three seasons and four of the previous five seasons in MLS.
Neagle played a variety of roles in the midfield and occasionally at forward for the Sounders. Two seasons ago, Neagle had a career-high nine goals and nine assists in 32 games. This season, Neagle had just two goals and four assists.
Neagle’s trade is the latest move in an offseason makeover for Seattle. The club also declined to extend contract options to Gonzalo Pineda and Marco Pappa.
