Soccer: Union trade Le Toux to Colorado

The Philadelphia Union announced on Wednesday that Sebastien Le Toux‘s second stint with the team had come to an end, as the 32-year-old midfielder was traded to the Colorado Rapids for general allocation money.

Le Toux was taken by the Union in the 2009 expansion draft after Seattle had left him unprotected. In 2010, he lead the team with a career-high of 14 goals.

Le Toux was shipped to Vancouver before the 2012 season but re-joined the team the following year and provided a career-high 12 assists.

This year, Le Toux has scored two goals in 21 games.

In total Le Toux has played six season for the team, scoring 50 goals in over 175 career games with the Union, which are both the most in franchise history.

“Sebastien has been a wonderful servant to the Philadelphia Union and we cannot thank him enough for his exemplary time and commitment,” Union sporting director Earnie Stewart said in a release by the team. “We want to wish him the best of luck in Colorado and in his future endeavors.”
