Wiki User Updates Le Toux Page With Union Trade, Big Apple Soccer's Source Says Nope

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

A user of Wikipedia updated Sebastien Le Toux's page to include a trade announcement from yesterday that would have sent the French forward back to the Philadelphia Union. Big Apple Soccer quoted a New York Red Bulls source who quashed the update.

Wikipedia said Sebastien Le Toux has returned to the Philadlephia Union yesterday.

Except he hadn't.

A user of Wikipedia updated Le Toux's page to include a trade announcement from yesterday that would have sent the French forward back to the Philadelphia Union.

"Le Toux was traded back to the Philadelphia Union at the end of the 2012 MLS season," the update read. "He will start with his former club in 2013."

The update was dated as having happened on November 15 and it sparked a lot of confusion for Red Bulls fans online. Big Apple Soccer's Kristian R. Dyer went so far as to seek out an answer to the update.

Dyer talked to a New York Red Bulls source who quashed the update.

"There is no truth to that whatsoever," the source told Big Apple Soccer.

Le Toux was previously linked back to the Union by an article on Union transfer targets by the Brotherly Game. Two sources discussed a potential deal between the two sides, with one saying it was close to being finished, while the other said only talks were ongoing.
