PSP: Josue Martinez The Player To Be Named In Sebastien Le Toux Deal

Eric Hartline-US PRESSWIRE

Phily Soccer Page is reporting that Josue Martinez is the player to be named in the trade that will send Sebastien Le Toux back to the Philadelphia Union via the New York Red Bulls.

The youth movement that began during the offseason leading into the 2012 Major League Soccer regular season has caught a slight snag, as Josue Martinez will reportedly depart for New York as part of the Sebastien Le Toux deal.

Philly Soccer Page tweeted that it had been told Martinez would be the player to be named in the Le Toux deal.

Sources with knowledge of situation confirm Le Toux return to the Union & name Josue Martinez as player going to NYRB.

Martinez was a former Costa Rican international when the Philadelphia Union, then under the stewardship of Peter Nowak, acquired him from Deportivo Saprissa. In 18 appearances, six of them starts, Martinez scored one goal and contributed six shots on target in 594 minutes.

The Union will also send allocation money, most likely at least a portion of what the team received in the Le Toux trade that sent him to Vancouver before the 2012 season, to the New York Red Bulls.

The allocation money is expected to allow the Red Bulls to retain the services of veteran target striker Kenny Cooper, who scored 18 goals the past season.

Le Toux's first stint with the Union ended with a controversial exit due to a disagreement over new contract terms. The Frenchman still holds Union franchise records in most offensive categories.
