MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Many teams are actively scouring the market for Designated Players, but not the Philadelphia Union. A few days after Coach Peter Nowak affirmed the team doesn't regard a DP as essential, the Union signed Argentine midfielder Eduardo Coudet, a 35-year-old veteran of league play in Mexico, Spain and his native country. He will be eligible for league play when Philly hosts New England July 31.

In his 17 professional seasons the native of Buenos Aires has played for San Luis and Necaxa in Mexico, Celta Vigo in Spain, and several Argentine clubs, including River Plate, San Lorenzo and Rosario Central. He comes to MLS from Club Atletico Colon in Argentina and has played twice for the Union in friendlies against Glasgow Celtic, in which he assisted on the game’s only goal scored by Sebastien Le Toux, and Manchester United.

The press release announcing his acquisition states Coudet (5-foot-10, 170 pounds) scored 50 goals in 400 Argentine league matches. The duration of his contract and salary terms have not been disclosed.

MLS teams can sign players under contract until Aug. 15, the closing date for the domestic transfer window. Out of contract players can be signed until the roster freeze date.
