[MLS 2014 COUNTDOWN] After an unsuccessful stint at Dutch club Heerenveen, Marco Pappa is back in MLS. He'll be allocated on Friday morning to the highest club in the current allocation order that picks him.

He played parts of five seasons with the Chicago Fire before being transferred to Heerenveen in August 2012. The transfer severed the Fire's rights to Pappa.

The Seattle Sounders hold the No. 1 pick in the current allocation order that it obtained from Chivas USA for Mauro Rosales' rights. The Philadelphia Union gave up the No. 1 pick to acquire Maurice Edu as a returning national team player.
