[MLS] D.C. United has reached an agreement by which midfielder Fred will join Australian club Melbourne Heart on a free transfer in July.

“When we re-acquired Fred earlier this year, we agreed in principle that we would let him go if he had an opportunity to sign abroad for a better contract,” said general manager Dave Kasper. “Fred has been nothing but a professional throughout his time at D.C. United and we have granted his request.

"The move will also free up significant salary as we look to improve our team during the upcoming transfer window. We thank Fred for his contributions to D.C. United and we wish him the best of luck.”

Fred came to MLS in 2007 after playing for Australia Victory and spent the 2007, 2008, and 2009 seasons with D.C. United. He played 72 games, scored 11 goals, and registered 16 assists.

He played 25 games for Philadelphia last year, scoring four goals and recording one assist. He had one assist in 12 games for D.C. United this season.

    Fred was a member of the 2006-07 Melbourne Victory FC A-League Championship squad (not Australian Victory). He returned to the A-League for a short 3-game stint with the now-defunct New Zealand Phoenix FC in 2008-09. This marks his third team in three visits to Australia.

    My mistake, the "Wellington" Phoenix FC are still very much alive and kicking, it's the New Zealand Knights FC that folded after the 2006-07 season and were replaced by Wellington.
