[MLS TRANSACTIONS] Less than a year after being unloaded by then-head coach Peter Nowak, popular Frenchman Sebastien Le Toux is back in Philadelphia. The Union sent allocation money and Costa Rican forward Josue Martinez to the New York Red Bulls.

Le Toux originally came to the United States to play for the Seattle Sounders in the USL First Division. He was taken by the Union in the 2009 expansion draft after one season with the Sounders in MLS.

Le Toux, 28, was instrumental in the club's 2011 MLS playoff run. He is the Union's all-time leading goal-scorer with 25 goals and 20 assists but he was traded to the Vancouver Whitecaps in January 2012 after having a falling out with Nowak.



Le Toux was traded to the Red Bulls in July in exchange for Dane Richards but never settle in with the Red Bulls.

"In our hearts Sebastien has always been a Union player," Union CEO and operating partner Nick Sakiewicz said, "and his contributions on the field and in the community while he was in Philadelphia were invaluable. We are thrilled to welcome him back and look forward to having him rejoin the club."
