Philadelphia Union finalizing USL loan deal for Brandan Craig
The Philadelphia Union is finalizing a deal to loan U.S. youth international center back Brandan Craig to USL Championship club El Paso Locomotive, sources briefed on the deal tell The Athletic.
Craig, 19, was a member of the United States’ squad at the U-20 World Cup last year. He has been a regular with Philly’s second team over the last few years but only made one first-team appearance. He was loaned to Austin FC last summer but never appeared in an MLS game for the club.
El Paso finished seventh in their conference last year and qualified for the playoffs, losing in the first round.
