The Philadelphia Union have officially completed a trade of Kyle Nakazawa to the LA Galaxy. Nakazawa will be sent to California with a second round selection in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft for one of the Galaxy's international roster spots.

Nakazawa was reported to be on his way to the Galaxy early this morning, when the Brotherly Game published a storywith information from a source knowledgeable on the situation.

The same source informed the Brotherly Game today that Nakazawa took a flight early this morning to travel to Los Angeles. Nakazawa is a native of California and a former UCLA standout, which led to the Union drafting him in the third round of the 2010 MLS SuperDraft.

The 24-year-old say little playing time in 2011, racking up only 1,208 minutes played in 22 games during the regular season. Despite being somewhat of a Nowak favorite later in 2010, Nakazawa was unable to find a way onto the field after the additions of midfielders Michael Farfan, Brian Carroll, Keon Daniel, Freddy Adu and Veljko Paunovic.
