Former Harrisburg City Islanders midfielder Morgan Langley has been signed by the Philadelphia Union, according to tweets from the player and his friends. 

Yesterday Langley tweeted that he was "speechless" and his "childhood dream just came true! #lifeisgood." The timing of the tweets coincided with the Islanders' announcement that Langley and teammate Sainey Touray would train with the Union for the remainder of the week.

However, one of Langley's friends tweeted today about him signing with the Union, congratulating the 22-year-old on joining the club:

So proud of my bud Morgan Langley for signing with the @PhilaUnion #TotalBaller

Langley will most likely make the league minimum, just like recent signing Joe Tait, and be added to the Union's senior team roster. 

A star at Swarthmore College, Langley joined the Islanders at the beginning of the 2011 United Soccer Leagues (USL) PRO season. The attacking midfielder didn't play much with the Islanders, averaging only 18 minutes a game in 20 appearances in 2011, but he did score two goals.

MLS' roster freeze deadline is 5 pm EST tonight.
