Danny Califf's time as the longest turned Philadelphia Union player will come to end today, as the center defender's trade to Chivas USA will become official.

The Los Angeles club has prepared a press conference for 10 a.m. PST to announce the acquisition of Califf from the Union. The briefing would confirm the Brotherly Game's report yesterday of the trade.

As of the posting of this article, neither team has said publicly that the trade was made official.

Diego Gutierrez, the Union's Sporting Director, addressed rumors of a trade involving Califf post game and stated that the team was discussing a proposal for Califf.

"We're considering something but as of now we don't have an agreement," Gutierrez told Dave Zeitlin. "Danny Califf is a Union player."

Chivas USA head coach Robin Fraser was asked about a report in the Philadelphia Daily News concerning the trade offer, but he said he had no knowledge of the exact situation being discussed.

"We listen to inquiries every day, we make inquiries every day," Fraser said to Scott French of ESPN Los Angeles. "It's part of the job. It happens all the time. ... Not a day goes by when we don't inquiries or make inquiries."

"Let's just say we've made enquiries," Fraser said."...It's all speculation at this point."

The former United States international was rumored to be heading to California as part of a package that included third-year striker Jack McInerney for veteran Colombian forward Juan Pablo Angel.
