Keon Daniel is not at the Youth Sports Complex, in Wayne, PA, according to fans that are at the Philadelphia Union's open team practice. Despite seeing a player of Daniel's build with a dreadlocks style haircut, the midfielder is not at the camp today.
Fans tweeted that the 25-year-old was sighted at preseason training camp this morning, before retracting their observations. Earl Gardner, one of the first to comment on who the player might be, said, "I am wrong, [Nazir] Khalfan from a distance looks a ton like Keon."
Daniel's status with the Union has taken a few interesting turns over the past six months. A visa problem forced the Trinidad and Tobago international to remain in his home country, after Daniel played for the national team in World Cup qualifiers.
Kyle Nakazawa is also not at today's practice session, with reports of a trade to the LA Galaxy surrounding him.
Former Union goalkeeper Chase Harrison, who was released by Philadelphia after the 2011 MLS season ended, is at YSC. Harrison is the only other goalkeeper at practice today.
