Will Johnson to Chicago Fire?
It's being reprted that MLS' Chicago Fire have used a 'discovery pick' on Canadian youth int'l Will Johnson, who has a hometown listed as Woodridge, IL.
uccello ishe not from woodbridge also
Uccello is from Woodbridge, Ontario.....Johnson is leaving in Woodbridge, Illinois
I'm not a big follower of MLS, so can someone tell me what exactly a discovery pick is?
Here's the paragraph from the MLS website.
• Discovery Players
A team may request that the league sign a U.S. or international player who is not currently under contract to MLS and assign the player to the requesting team. A team may add no more than two senior roster Discovery players by request in any calendar year, and shall have no more than four Discovery players on its senior roster at any time. Teams may trade Discovery players but may not trade Discovery player "spots."
More can be had at their rules page.
