MOST COMMENTED

[USL PRO]The Philadelphia Union became the latest MLS club to send players off on loan to its USL PRO affiliate. Forward Cristhian Hernandez and midfielderJimmy McLaughlin -- both homegrown signings -- and midfielder Greg Jordanwill join the Harrisburg City Islanders for the 2013 season. Philadelphia will have the option to recall any of the three players during the loan period.
 
“Cristhian, Greg and Jimmy are young players with a lot of potential, but the reality is that they need game experience at this point in their careers,” Union manager John Hackworth said in a statement. “This opportunity allows them to develop that game experience at a professional level while contributing to the success of our USL PRO affiliate, Harrisburg City Islanders.”
 
Other MLS-USL PRO affiliation loan deals:

-- D.C. United loaned four players -- forward Casey Townsend, defender/midfielder Taylor Kemp, forward Michael Seaton and midfielder Conor Shanosky -- to the Richmond Kickers.

-- Sporting Kansas City loaned four players -- goalkeeper Jon Kempin, defender Yann Songo'o, midfielder Christian Duke and forward Dom Dwyer -- to Orlando City.

The New England Revolution is the only other MLS club with a formal affiliation agreement with a USL PRO club to not announce its loan moves. The Revs loan players are headed to the Rochester Rhinos.

In other MLS-USL PRO loan deals:

-- Richmond Strikers Academy and University of Virginia midfielder Brian Ownby returns to Richmond to play for the Kickers on loan from the Houston Dynamo.

-- The Vancouver Whitecaps are finalizing loan agreements that will send Canadians Bryce Alderson and Ben Fisk and Ghanaian Emmanuel Adjetey to the Charleston Battery.
