Washington, D.C. (Sports Network) - D.C. United acquired striker Long Tan from
Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Thursday for a first-round selection in the 2015 MLS
The 24-year-old Tan joined Vancouver prior to last season to become the first
Chinese-born player in the league. He played 13 games, including four starts,
last season and had made four appearances this season.
"We're happy to have Long join our organization and will look forward to him
joining the team. He's an interesting prospect and a player we feel has a
future upside," said D.C. United General Manager Dave Kasper.
Tan has one goal in MLS, against D.C. United last season.
