The Philadelphia Union took advantage of the final few hours of the transfer window being open, as they bolstered their attacking depth by signing a player with European experience.
Philadelphia acquired German midfielder/foward Kai Herdling on loan from German Bundesliga club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, the Union announced on Monday. Herdling will add another attacking option for Peter Nowak on a team that already boasts the likes of Freddy Adu and Danny Mwanga.
Herdling, 27, spent much of this season with the Hoffenheim reserves. He scored nine goals, assisted on 14 others and spent some time as captain for Hoffenheim II before joining the Union.
What do you think of the Union getting Herdling? Do you see him making an impact?
