Former Philadelphia Union midfielder Eduardo Coudet is set to sign with the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers, a team source told the Brotherly Game.

The Argentine and former River Plate midfielder played in nine games for the Union after signing with the team, after a short trial including a game against Scottish side Celtic, in July of 2010. With his unique blonde hair making him stick out, Coudet was a noticed improvement in the middle for the Union midfield during his limited time with the team.

Despite providing consistent play for the Union, "Chacho" was seen as a surplus to head coach Piotr Nowak's squad and let go on February 14, 2011. He was not heard from until February 25, when he and former Union trialist Aaron Wheeler were listed in the Striker's post-game players list against the New York Red Bulls.

The Strikers are comprised of former MLS and USL players and Coudet will be the second oldest player on the squad once his signing his official.

"Players like Coudet are very hard to fine. We look to his leadership this season," head coach Daryl Shore said of the 36-year-old midfielder.

Coudet will be announced officially as a Strikers player later today.
